A Summons to Answer Interrogatories is directed to an individual judgment debtor, directing him or her to appear before the court or a Commissioner in Chancery, to answer questions concerning the type, amount, and location of all assets, real and personal, in which the judgment debtor has an interest. In Loudoun County Circuit Court, they are heard before Commissioners by appointment. Because this is a post judgment proceeding, any existing case number no longer applies. Each Summons to Answer Interrogatories is a new Civil action; do not assign a previous law action number to any of the Summons to Answer Interrogatories forms. Please schedule an appointment with a Commissioner prior to completing and submitting your filing. View a list of Commissioners (PDF).
The filing fee is $6.50, and service by sheriff is $24.
Amounts on the Summons to Answer Interrogatories must match those awarded in the Judgment. If no interest is awarded in the Judgment, creditor may claim interest at the legal Judgment rate (VA Code §6.2-302).
If you submit an Attorney Issued Subpoena Duces Tecum to accompany the Summons to Answer Interrogatories, and want it served by sheriff, you must include an additional $12 service fee. If you want the court to produce a Subpoena Duces Tecum, you must provide the attachments with your request and pay a $5 processing fee in addition to any service fees. Again, you must submit an original plus 2 copies.
