Discovery is much of the process in any lawsuit. It is the term that describes what is supposed to happen between the filing of the lawsuit and the trial. The purpose is for each side to "discover" all of the facts and information that the other side has to either prove (Plaintiff’s claims) or disprove (Defendant’s case) the statements or allegations in the Petition.

Collection: Winning your case in court is often only 10% of the problem in recovering your money. Many people, even after losing in court and being ordered to pay another person some money, still do not pay.

Once a Complaint is filed against a Defendant or Defendants, each is required to answer the Complaint, which usually means to file a form response to all of the statements or allegations in the Complaint. It is typical for the Defendant to deny everything at this stage, since it is the Plaintiff’s burden of proof to prove each statement in his/her Complaint.
