Answer:

Your question appears to be in regard to how much advance notice you need to give of witnesses you plan to call. The answer will be determined by local court rules and the case management guidelines established in your case. Generally, a witness list must be provided to the opposing party according to the timelines established in local couirt rules, which vary by court. We suggest you inquire with the clerk of courts where to obtain a copy of the rules.
