deposition

Out-of-court testimony under oath by a witness or other party either during the pendency of a lawsuit or in order to preserve evidence in the event of a lawsuit.The testimony is recorded and transcribed by a court reporter, and the deponent (the person giving the deposition testimony) then signs the transcript to confirm that it is a true and accurate record of the questions asked and the answers given.Deposition testimony is admissible in court under some circumstances if the deponent is unavailable to testify.Especially when dealing with elderly persons,if there is some dispute over title to real property or the effects of adverse possession, it is good practice to obtain deposition testimony.
