When should this form be used?
This form should be used to ask 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. If the other party fails to answer the questions, you may ask the judge to order the other
party to answer the questions. (You cannot ask these questions before the petition has been
filed.)
The questions in this form should be used in modification proceedings and are meant to
supplement the information provided in the Financial Affidavit, Florida Family Law Rules of
Procedure Form 12.902(b) or (c). You should read all of the questions in this form to determine
which questions, if any, the other party needs to answer in order to provide you with
information not covered in the financial affidavit forms. If there are questions to which you
already know the answer, you may choose not to ask them.
This form should be typed or printed in black ink. You must complete the box at the beginning of
this form to indicate which questions you are requesting that the other party answer.
You must serve the other party with an original and a copy of these interrogatories and a copy
of the Notice of Service of Standard Family Law Interrogatories, Florida Family Law Rules of
Procedure Form 12.930(a), if by mail or hand delivery. You must serve an original of these
interrogatories and a copy of the Notice, if by email. Service must be in accordance with Florida
Rule of Judicial Administration 2.516.
You should also keep a copy for your records. You should not file this form with the clerk of the
circuit court. However, you must file the Notice of Service of Standard Family Law
Interrogatories, Florida Family Law Rules of Procedure Form 12.930(a), to tell the court that you
have sent this form to the other party.
After you receive the completed answers to the interrogatories, DO NOT FILE THE ORIGINAL OR
A COPY WITH THE CLERK OF THE COURT UNLESS THE ANSWERS ARE ADMITTED INTO
EVIDENCE BY THE COURT AND ARE IN COMPLIANCE WITH FLORIDA RULE OF JUDICIAL
ADMINISTRATION 2.425
