Summons to Answer Interrogatories
A Summons to Answer Interrogatories is directed to an individual judgment debtor, directing him or her to appear before the court, to answer questions concerning the type, amount, and location of all assets, real and personal, in which the judgment debtor has an interest. Because this is a post judgment proceeding, any existing case number no longer applies. Each Summons to Answer Interrogatories is a new Civil action; do not assign a precious law action number to any of the Summons to Answer Interrogatories forms. Please schedule an appointment with the Judge's assistant prior to completing and submitting your filing.
