A deposition is a legal proceeding in which a witness is questioned under oath by attorneys prior to trial. The witness’s testimony is recorded and can be used as evidence in court.
Interpreting refers to the process of translating spoken language from one language to another during a deposition. An interpreter is present to help parties who do not speak the same language to communicate effectively.
Legal professionals can consult with DMS’ staff attorneys regarding international service of process and evidence taking abroad.
However, DMS is not a law firm and we cannot give general legal or immigration advice to individuals.
An interpreter may be needed if any of the parties involved in the deposition do not speak the same language. In California, interpreters are required by law to be provided in some situations, such as when a witness is deaf or hard of hearing.
