I have custody and non-custodial parent is now trying to take it away from me. I can't afford an attorney but he, my ex, came into some money and can has hired an attorney. Said attorney sent me a list of 52 discovery items they are requesting. Can I object because of relevance, hearsay, questions lack foundation?
Pay an attorney to prepare your discovery responses and objections.
Accepting cases in Dallas, Denton, Collin and Tarrant Counties. THIS IS GENERAL ADVICE AND DOES NOT REPLACE A PERSONAL CONSULTATION WITH AN ATTORNEY AND DOES NOT ESTABLISH AN ATTORNEY/CLIENT RELATIONSHIP
While hiring an attorney would be your best bet, you can represent yourself if you must. You may urge any objections that an attorney would assert, including the ones you mention. However, you should remember the old adage -- "He who represents himself has a fool for a client."
You can object, but only if the objection is reasonable. They should have sent you only 25 interrogatories and 25 requests for production. You can object to any more than that. Any other objections are hard for a pro-se to determine if they are reasonable. See if you can find an attorney who will help you with answering these discovery requests. If you make objections that are not reasonable you may get hit with the other side's attorneys fees.
