As discussed in some of our previous blogs, taking depositions in Germany can be tricky. With a little preparation, and breaking everything down step-by-step, you’ll find that depositions in Germany aren’t as bad as initially thought.

In the second installment of our international deposition videos, we walk you through the process and give you some advice so that your deposition in Frankfurt, Germany can go off without a hitch.

As a recap —

  1. Prepare your notice and submit it to the U.S. Consulate in Frankfurt, along with the required deposition fee, at least six (6) weeks before your desired deposition date.
  2. Send your list of participants, along with all electronic equipment each will be bringing, to the Consulate at least three (3) business days before your deposition date.

Planet Depos has been covering depositions in Germany, and around the world, for over a decade.  We can provide you with court reporters, videographers, and vetted interpreters, and we can even help you with printing and shredding exhibits while you’re there.  Give us a call at 888-433-3767 or email us at to speak with one of our International Deposition specialists today!
