Q: My ex is asking for transcripts from my cell phone, Facebook, Discord, and others in a divorce. I don't want to comply
He was abusive and controlling, I have no proof, no kids, only a house. I walked away with nothing and want nothing. What happens if I do not give him these transcripts?
A: Was it a formal discovery request? Discovery is a complicated process. You may have grounds to object in your discovery responses. But ultimately, if the court orders you to turn over the documents then you would have to or face sanctions. Same goes if you completely ignore the requests. You would be wise to consult with an attorney.
A: Hi, these requests do not appear to be seeking information that is likely to lead to the discovery of admissible or relevant evidence and are only being done for the purpose of harassing you, however, there is not enough information in your question on whether you should provide these documents or how to respond. What does your attorney say about it?
