Discovery is where you complete an affidavit setting out all the documents and correspondence which you will be using and relying upon in a trial to obtain the relief requested in your pleadings. Several discovery affidavits can be completed in a divorce action as new or updated documents and information is obtained.
These are documents in which the parties either set out what they want from the divorce action and their reasons for that, or reply to what the other party has said about what they want from the divorce action.
