    Answered . The discovery process in litigation is designed to allow a party to obtain information that may be relevant to a pending case or may lead to relevant evidence. Thus, discovery will depend upon the facts and issues in each case. Important questions in a custody action may include issues such as incest and suicide and this information may be discoverable.
