The Post-Judgment Toolbox: Discovery Assets via Interrogatories

Interrogatories are one more tool for judgment creditors to use to discover a debtor’s assets subject to an outstanding judgment. Interrogatories may be used to investigate bank information, personal property, real property, or other assets otherwise left undisclosed. As in litigation, these interrogatories are questions which must be answered under oath. There is no limit to how many questions can be asked, but in the interest of justice, the amount should not subject the debtor to annoyance, expense, embarrassment or oppression. Failure to completely or accurately respond to these interrogatories may result in additional action from the court and, ultimately, the debtor being held in contempt.

For more information, see the relevant statute governing these interrogatories below:

N.C. Gen. Stat. 1-352.1:
