Discovery in Placer County is the fact-finding phase of divorce litigation which takes place after a petition has been filed but before trial. The purpose of discovery is to uncover helpful information to use in a case. Ideally, spouses would willingly hand over documents, but this often does not happen for a variety of reasons. Many different discovery techniques are available for litigants to use, such as requests to produce documents, written questions (interrogatories), and sworn depositions, where witnesses give testimony under oath. Discovery can take a considerable amount of time in contested divorces and often increases the bill of a contested divorce dramatically.
