    Answered . You do not have enough facts to know exactly what is going on. These could be interrogatories for discovery or as part of an attempt to collect a judgment. Assuming everything else is valid, you must answer these in the time stated or your risk contempt. You should contact an attorney to review your matter.

    Answered . The law allows them to ask you written questions under oath as part of the lawsuit. You can object to improper questions. If you do not answer or make frivolous objections the court can order you to answer and pay sanctions.
