What are Special Civil interrogatories?
New Jersey Special Civil Part interrogatories are written questions that ask information about the facts of your case. New Jersey Special Civil Part interrogatories must be answered in writing and the answers must include an affidavit or certification that swears that the Special Civil Part answers are truthful. Plaintiffs and defendants in certain types of New Jersey Special Civil Part cases are allowed to serve Special Civil Part interrogatories on their opponents.

What are Special Civil affidavits?
In New Jersey Special Civil Part, an affidavit is a statement signed by a person that states that they are swearing that the information contained in the affidavit (or in an attachment to the affidavit, such as New Jersey Special Civil Part interrogatory answers) is truthful. A New Jersey Special Civil Part affidavit is notarized by a notary public of the State of New Jersey.

What are Special Civil certifications?
In New Jersey Special Civil Part, a certification is a statement signed by a person that states that they are swearing that the information contained in the certification (or in an attachment to the certification, such as New Jersey Special Civil Part interrogatory answers) is truthful. Unlike affidavits, certifications are not notarized by a notary public of the state of New Jersey.

How are New Jersey Special Civil Part interrogatories used in New Jersey Special Civil Part?
In New Jersey Special Civil Part, interrogatories are conclusively proven facts that can be used at your New Jersey Special Civil Part trial against the party that provides the answers. In New Jersey Special Civil Part interrogatory answers must be completed very carefully. Otherwise, the New Jersey Special Civil Part answers could defeat the answering party’s complaint or answer by giving the opposing party the information they need to beat the answering party in court. Many people fail to take interrogatories seriously and thereby lose their case. Parties that fail to serve interrogatories in New Jersey Special Civil Part are taking major risks in their New Jersey Special Civil Part case. Interrogatories allow parties to find out important information about their opponent’s case before a New Jersey Special Civil Part trial. Without the information that parties can get through interrogatories, the parties could be going to a New Jersey Special Civil Part trial without knowing what the other party will say or do at the New Jersey Special Civil Part trial. Many people lose their New Jersey Special Civil Part trial because they don’t understand what they must do to prove their case. Many people think they just file a Special Civil Part complaint or Special Civil Part answer and then show up in New Jersey Special Civil Part court with papers and tell their story. This is not always how New Jersey Special Civil Part trials work! Never assume you can just show up to court with documents and use them to support the Special Civil trial of your case or even refer to them at trial. While it is true that you must bring all documents, photographs, videos and other items with you to the Special Civil trial that are necessary to prove your case (preferably originals), even if you bring such documents and items to court, the New Jersey Special Civil Part may refuse to allow you to use them at your trial. New Jersey has published cases, laws, regulations, court rules and rules of evidence that are very tricky and that can be used to prevent you from doing much of what you want to do at trial. Accordingly, before trial, you must consult all of these rules to determine how you intend to get your documents and items into evidence or how to properly use them at trial. Hearsay rules of evidence are particularly troublesome and you should study them carefully before trial. For example, it is very common for courts to refuse to allow a party to use or refer to documents or items that the person themselves never prepared. Often parties stumble into court with a video, photograph, bill or affidavit or other form of written statement, thinking they are going to use it as proof that they lost money or that they are not responsible for someone else’s damages, only to have a judge tell the parties that it is not going to even consider such items or documents. Without the proper preparation, items and documents may never be considered by the New Jersey Special Civil Part court. Written requests for information served and answered in advance of a New Jersey Special Civil Part trial are often useful tools to get the information needed before a New Jersey Special Civil Part trial to prove a case or a defense.


When are answers to interrogatories due?
In New Jersey Special Civil Part, interrogatories are due within 30 days after they are served (mailed) upon another party. Do not confuse the date a party receives the New Jersey Special Civil Part interrogatories as the same as the date of service! The date of service is the date of their mailing. If the New Jersey Special Civil Part interrogatories are dated, that date may be the date of mailing. If the New Jersey Special Civil Part interrogatories are sent with a letter forwarding the New Jersey Special Civil Part interrogatories, the date of that letter may be the date of service.

If I answer interrogatories, should I give original records, photographs or other items about my case to my opponents?
When you answer New Jersey Special Civil Part interrogatories, Never give any opponent, get rid of or give away any original records about your case or about the facts of your case (such as invoices, bills, receipts, photographs, plans, blueprints, reports that you received from police departments, etc.) – if you go to trial you shall need these documents and if you submit them to the court before the Special Civil trial the New Jersey Special Civil Part court may not give them back to you for use at your New Jersey Special Civil Part trial!!!! You never give originals to anyone before trial and you need to use originals at your New Jersey Special Civil Part trial!!! Keep originals for your records and to bring these items to any New Jersey Special Civil Part court hearings.

What happens if a defendant ignores interrogatories?
If you ignore New Jersey Special Civil Part interrogatories and you are the defendant or a plaintiff facing a counterclaim, then the party that serves them on you can ask to have any answer that you file with the court “suppressed” or “stricken” or may ask the court to “compel” you or force you to provide answers or face court penalties.
