Deposition Rule #9 for Florida Divorce
Posted By Posted by Stann Givens on May 5, 2011 5:30am PDT || May 5, 2011In the tactics that expert St. Petersburg divorce lawyers use during the course of a case, one is very simple. That is to tell your client to make sure the client understands a question at a deposition before answering it.
Many people feel that they will be looked upon as unintelligent if they do not answer right away to every question posed at a deposition. That is not true. To the contrary, if you are asked a question that you are not clear about and you go ahead and answer it, your answer could hurt your case.
You are not required to answer a question that you do not understand. If you hear one of those questions, just say that you don't understand it. For example: If the other lawyer asks you, "Was she there, also?" and you don't know which "she" is the subject of the question, just say that you don't understand the question.
