Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Dear Bastrop, Texas:
The person that noticed the deposition pays for the cost of the deposition. However, if you want a copy of the transcript, you will have to pay for the copy.
Questions can be submitted in writing at a deposition, but arrangements have to be made well in advance with the Court Reporter. Remember, the Court Reporter can only ask the questions; he or she can't follow up if the deponent does not answer as expected.
