INSTRUCTIONS FOR FLORIDA FAMILY LAW RULES OF PROCEDURE
FORM 12.930(a)
NOTICE OF SERVICE OF STANDARD FAMILY LAW INTERROGATORIES
(03/17)
When should this form be used?
You should use this form to tell the court that you are asking the other party in your case to answer
certain standard questions in writing. These questions are called interrogatories, and they must relate
to your case. The standard family law interrogatories are designed to supplement the information
provided in the Financial Affidavit, Florida Family Law Rules of Procedure Form 12.902(b) or (c). You
should carefully read the standard interrogatory forms, Florida Family Law Rules of Procedure Form
12.930(b) and (c), to determine which questions, if any, the other party needs to answer in order to
provide you with information not covered by the financial affidavit forms.
This form should be typed or printed in black ink. You must indicate whether you are sending the
interrogatories for original and enforcement proceedings or the interrogatories for modification
proceedings. You must also indicate which questions you are asking the other party to answer. After
completing this form you should file the original with the clerk of the circuit court in the county where
your case was filed and keep a copy for your records.
What should I do next?
You must serve the other party with a copy of this form along with an original and a copy of the
appropriate interrogatories, Florida Family Law Rules of Procedure Form 12.930(b) or (c), if service is by
mail or hand delivery. You must serve a copy of this form and a copy of the interrogatories if service is
by email. Service must be in accordance with Florida Rule of Judicial Administration 2.516.
You may want to inform the other party of the following information:
As a general rule, within 30 days after service of interrogatories, the other party must answer the
questions in writing and serve you with the answers. Service of the answers must be in compliance with
Florida Rule of Judicial Administration 2.516. His or her answers may be written on as many separate
sheets of paper as necessary. He or she should number each page and indicate which question(s) he or
she is answering, and be sure to make a copy for him/herself. All answers to these questions are made
under oath or affirmation as to their truthfulness. Each question must be answered separately and as
completely as the available information permits. The original of the answers to the interrogatories is to
be provided to the requesting party. Do not file the original or a copy with the clerk of the circuit court
except as provided in Florida Family Law Rule of Procedure 12.340(d).
The other party may object to a question by writing the legal reason for the objection in the space
provided. He or she may also ask the court for a protective order granting him or her permission not to
answer certain questions and protecting him or her from annoyance, embarrassment, apprehension, or
undue burden or expense. If the other party fails to either answer or object to the questions within 30
days, he or she may be subject to court sanctions.
