Failure to respond the Post-Judgment discovery can get you arrested.
What are Interrogatories?

What is a Request for Admissions?
Admissions is part of the discovery process, you will be asked to admit or deny a series of questions in regards to the issue the creditor is suing for or it might ask questions about certain assets. 30 days is the usual time given to respond to this request. Failure to respond to the admissions will mean that they will automatically be admitted.
