Wendy K. Tse, a family lawyer in Long Beach California, explains what a deposition is and what you can expect from the process.
What is a deposition?
A deposition is a formal means of obtaining information in a civil action and is basically your testimony under oath taken outside the courtroom, usually taken in one of the attorney’s offices. You will be asked questions by the opposing attorney and, in some cases, by other attorneys. The questions and your answers will be recorded by an official court reporter.
