When trial is inevitable and you know you might be facing the court system, you might be facing a divorce deposition. Divorce deposition is used at the end of the divorce process to find out more about certain aspects. It is a way to find out the facts of the case before a settlement is reached or the case is resolved in court. Depositions are also given under oath, which means you can’t lie.
When a Divorce Deposition Must Be Used
You might find deposition in a variety of cases, from custody issues, to financial issues and so much more. When it involves a child, the questions might be very personal. For instance, a parent might be asked if they are using drugs of any kind, if they have had a brush with the law, or if there have been any visitation problems in the past.
You might also be asked a variety of questions on a financial level. For instance, you might be asked about any investments you have, who you have transferred assets to over the years for safekeeping, and more.
If you are going through deposition, you don’t have much choice when it comes to answering. Many people wonder if they’re able to object or decline certain questions, but you will find that many are permissible and that you will have to answer. This is one of those parts of divorce where you might find that your private life is brought into the public eye, and could be an uncomfortable scenario. However, going over these disputes and getting to the bottom of your divorce is going to make things easier on you.
