Upon my mother's death, my brother filed a Heggstad petition. I am scheduled for a deposition on May 15. We went to court in March where the judge heard both sides. The judge suggested mediation which is scheduled for June 2. The lawyers that I hired became too expensive for me because there were two lawyers working on my case when I only need one. I am in the process of hiring a new lawyer. Why should I spend money in a deposition before the mediation day? I think that if no agreement is reached at mediation, then the deposition seem logic. Am I obligated by law to have this deposition or can I postpone it until after the mediation?
