How soon ahead of time do we need to schedule our deposition abroad?
As far ahead as possible! Qualified court reporters, legal videographers, and interpreters are in short supply in most regions outside of the U.S. For this reason, we recommend scheduling your deposition several weeks in advance in order to guarantee the availability of local personnel. Some countries also require visas for entry, which can take upwards of a month to process. Although we are happy to provide our clients with creative solutions to make their last-minute, international depositions happen, to be on the safe side we recommend organizing your foreign deposition at least a month (or more!) in advance.
