Stay calm.

An opposing attorney may ask about your mental and physical health, your income, your lifestyle choices, and other factors. In custody battles, these may be pointed questions intended to portray you as an unsupportive parent. If you suspect the other attorney is trying to upset or provoke you, do not respond. Your attorney can intercede on your behalf or ask for a break if you are being treated unfairly.

Do not make jokes.

Some people attempt a joke during depositions in order to make themselves more relatable or simply because they are nervous. However, these jokes may not translate well when they are read back on the transcript and may be seen as flippant or disrespectful.
