Initial Disclosure?

I have a couple of things I'm unsure of. One is when submitting first initial disclosure to defendants, how much information do I have to include?
I am aware that I must reveal witnesses and documents, but just how much should I tell them about the witness' knowledge of facts? Another is do I have to use special forms for interrogatories and requests for admission, if so, where do I find them?
Thanks for any advice.

pro se litigation, I presume

You don't say what court you are in. The rules vary with the court. If you are in Federal Court, I would advise you to at least find someone who practices in the same court and pay them for a couple of hours to orient you. In general, you should understand that if you fail to disclose something now, you may find it difficult or, in the worst case, impossible to use later when you might need it. For forms, you can go to the NC Supreme Court library in Raleigh and use their form books or you can go to the closest courthouse and get a clerk in the civil section to let you look at a similar case to give you ideas. Clerks will not be able to give legal advice though. Good luck.
