A deposition is an involuntary sworn statement made by a witness for use in legal proceedings. In taking a deposition, we will first make sure the witness is sworn in because we are officially appointed, by the Secretary of State of California, to serve the public in performing Depositions. We certify that the witness was sworn and that the transcribed document is a true and record of the witness’ testimony.
If a videotaped deposition is requested, we will make sure the witness is sworn. The videotape should be given to the attorney for the party requesting the deposition.
Our service fee for a routine Deposition is $30 plus a $7 fee for administering a sworn oath + $7 for a certificate of the Deposition.
