Q: Notice to Produce. What if I refuse to provide or lie and say I’m not having an affair when I am?
A: You can't lie. Just admit it and move on. You aren't going to prison for an affair.
A: If you do not respond to the interrogatories or provide the documents you have been asked to provide, a motion to compel could be filed against you. If a motion to compel is filed and you are found in contempt of court, you could be ordered to pay attorneys fees to the other party or sanctioned and force to produce your responses anyway. Therefore, the best thing for you to do is to go ahead and provide truthful responses and respond in a timely manner, according to law, from the time you were served with said request.
