Witnesses, Use of depositions in court proceedings

In actions for divorce, annulment or legal separation, only one corroborating witness, who may be a party and who has personal knowledge of the facts that constitute grounds for the action, shall be required.

Pursuant to Ohio Civil Rule 32, every deposition intended to be presented as evidence must be filed with the Clerk of Courts at least one day before the day of trial or hearing unless for good cause shown the court permits a later filing.  If the deposition testimony is recorded by other than stenographic means, a transcript of the deposition shall accompany the filing of the deposition.  A log of objections shall accompany all depositions presented as evidence.
