Requests for Admissions Discovery In Divorce


Requests for Admissions are a tool used by attorneys to discover information in divorce cases.  These documents are served by either a plaintiff or defendant on the other party to answer, under oath and penalty of perjury, either admitting or denying a specific factual statement.  For example, some sample Requests for Admissions may look like these:

  • Admit that you were fired from your most recent employment.
  • Admit that your daughter, Chelsea, failed Algebra class in the fall of 2012.
  • Admit that you began a sexual relationship with a person other than your wife in October 2010.
  • Admit that you are signatory on a Bank of America checking account.

The responding party would then “admit” or “deny” these statements, under oath and penalty of perjury.
