What should I consider when giving my deposition?

When a couple goes through a divorce, they will have to go through the discovery process as well to determine how the assets will be handled. This may be overwhelming for some, especially those who have never been involved in legal proceedings before. There are a lot of different things that a person preparing for their deposition should make themselves aware of.

First, you should meet with your attorney so they can work with you to make sure you have all of your documents ready to go. You should make sure you are ready to answer any question that you may be asked in detail. All of the answers you give and statements you make need to be one hundred percent truthful. You are under oath and will face penalties if you are dishonest.

During the deposition, you will be asked a lot of different questions by the attorney defending the other side. They may ask about your work history and finances, your education, your relationship with your children, and anything else that can help them find the information they are looking for. Your attorney will not only prepare you for the deposition but they will also be there with you during the process. If they feel the other side is asking a question that is out of line, they can object on your behalf.

If you have questions about a deposition, contact an experienced divorce attorney who can provide you with assistance.
