Dear Customer,

Thank you for using our forum.

Yes, you are required to serve these papers on the opposing party (as well as on the deponent).

Thank you for your response and attachments. One final question, please. I'm assuming a letter to attorney is sufficient. Is there an appropriate time period I need to be aware of?

Dear Customer,

I would recommend reviewing Rule 1:5 with regards ***** ***** You need to send it to opposing counsel - USPS should be sufficient, but you need to ensure that notice is received in time for the opposing party to act on it - I don't recommend trying to play tricks with the rules of service here - if you send the notice via USPS 5 days before trial, the court may find your notice is untimely (the opposing party does not have 5 days service) and you could potentially lose the ability to bring your witness - courts do not appreciate "gotcha" litigation.

"The notice shall be served in accordance with R. 1:5-2 at least 5 days before trial." R 1:9-1
