Medina, OH asked in Divorce and Domestic Violence for Ohio

Q: Can I, and how do I go about, scheduling a Deposition and calling on a Witness to participate— without an attorney?

I can no longer afford legal representation at the current time. I had to let my attorney go last week. Having a Deposition ASAP is in my best interest. Without counsel, I could use guidance on where to begin and how to best proceed.

A: The Ohio Rules of Civil Procedure are the place to begin. See the link below:

Depending on where you are, I would check to see if there are any local rules which pertain to the manner in which depositions are taken.

Best of luck.
