Code of Civil Procedure section 2030.050 - "Declaration for Additional Interrogatories"

Limited Number of Specially Prepared Interrogatories in Family Law Litigation

CCP section 2030.030 limits the number of interrogatories that can be asked in a case to 35; however, all that is needed is a properly completed declaration for additional discovery in order to ask a greater number. If the other party asks more than 35 interrogatories but fails to submit the declaration, you can object to the additional questions so long as you do so within 30 days (plus 5 more mailing) from the date they mailed the questions.
