What You Should Know About the Divorce Deposition Process

divorce depositionWhen 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.

Deposition can be a difficult process and you have rights when it comes to these aspects in your case. Let us help you every step of the way. Call us today at the Law Office of Soheila Azizi & Associates.

Beyond impressed! I had been self represented through years of family law and child support court hearings and was so hesitant to hire an attorney out of fear and trusting that they would appropriately represent myself and child. After tons of research I contacted Ms. Azizi. I immediately was greeted by Lorenzo, the Office Administrator, who made me feel so welcomed and comfortable. He assisted in making communication seamless and effortless and walked me through each step of the process. Ms. Azizi heard my concerns and was extremely sensitive to the matter of FAMILY. The team did an amazing job with discovery and building a strong case that gave me confidence and I was successful in coming to an agreement with the other party, in what has yet to have been the easiest hearing of all, thanks to them. Ms. Azizi settled my case after years of stress and agony. I am grateful for finding the team and Ms. Azizi and definitely recommend them for any of your legal needs!

This law firm is the best! They have helped me so much with my Divorce and Criminal cases and I really wouldn't know what to do if I didn't have them to represent me. Lorenzo and Ro are awesome and are there to help at all times. My attorney was Mr.Edmondson and he has been amazing. This law firm is truly great and I will never go to any other one. Their responses are quick and will answer any questions you might have.

Seven stars. I had planned to put up my reviews after my final judgment but after the first hearing, couldn't wait, and I would write this whatever the outcome of my difficult case. Soheila was simply amazing in her arguments and strategy before the judge. I felt so taken care of. I chose her for her near-30 years of experience as an attorney, the depth and strength I observed in one who had weathered hardship through her many accomplishments, her compassion, and her smarts. I can't imagine what other attorney would have Zoomed with me even in sickness to help prepare me for a legal session. And I later saw how keen she'd been in her advice. I've been deeply touched watching Soheila and her paralegal Lynda Walker fight for my child as if he were their own. They in particular have treated me with great humanity - day and night from what I experienced at my former attorney's. Lynda is a gem, on her toes, flexible, hard-working, committed to each client, humble, and sweet. She has slaved over my case, doing much of the writing, watchful of me on paper and in person, guiding me gently while encouraging me to use my voice. The staff, including the office administrator Lorenzo and Linda C, is caring, respectful, and conscientious. A band of angels.
