I am a plaintiff and wanted to know if my wife can sit in on the deposition to be with me just for moral support.
If it is a personal injury action and your wife is making a claim for loss of consortium she is a party and you might not be aware of this. Ask your lawyer if she is a party. If she is then she can sit in on any deposition.
If not, a agree with my colleagues that she is not permitted to do so.

You should contact those lawyers at once.
If you are not a member of a class, then you may well have an individual case. Since it was likely based on a California contract and any misrepresentations and non-disclosures occurred in California, you likely would need to proceed in California.
