I'm having some difficulty determining from IA Code 1.500(1)(a) and 1.500(1)(d), exactly what information we're required to exchange besides the financial info listed in 1.500(1)(d), if any, due to the wording "in lieu of 1.500(1)(a)." My husband's atty filed a Motion for and was granted waiver of the discovery conference and discovery plan. The Order says we have to make them by 7/15, and "either party shall be free to commence with their normal discovery process as soon as they have served their initial discovery information upon the opposing party." The trial date is 11/26.
I want to do things right, but I also need to be strategic about what I hand over, & get the names/contact info from him for a few people w/ info I really need to get from depos on them, that he'll resist and fight.
Iowa Code Chapter 598 and your Family Law requirements order will answer these questions if you read them in concert with Iowa Rule of Civil Procedure 1.500.
