Absolutely, a deposition is testimony under oath. Appear at the appointed time with any documents that you have been asked to bring, DO NOT bring any other documents or materials. ALWAYS tell the truth. Listen very carefully to the questions, and THINK carefully before answering. If you do not understand the question, ask for it to be reread and/or explained. Do not speculate, make small talk and NEVER joke or behave disrespectfully. If you do not know the answer to a question just say so, do not try to "invent" a response. Always keep in mind you are under oath and subject to charges of perjury if you deliberately give misleading or false testimony. I am assuming that there was a complaint and summons filed within the statute of limitations from which the notice of deposition arises. If a suit was filed before the statute ran, then yes, you would be required to attend and answer questions under oath to the best of your recollection. If there was no suit filed within the statute of limitations, and a deposition was noticed in a late filed action, you could decide to decline to appear, unless the deposition notice was accompanied by a subpoena. In that case, you shoudl consult a local lawyer and attempt to have the notice of deposition quashed, and the suit thrown out. Otherwise, you are required to attend if you are a party to the suit.
What you are asking about is a statute of limitations. If a creditor files suit after the statute of limitations has ended, you can file a motion to dismissed based on the expired statute of limitations. The length of the statute of limitations depends on the state and the type of claim they'd be filing against you.
Yes, it can even if the applicable statute of limitations on the claim has expired. A court will not refuse to accept a complaint for action just because the statute of limitations has expired. Nothing in any court rule forbids a plaintiff from filing an action that is beyond the statute of limitations. In fact, court rules require that a defendant must make an affirmative statement in the answering pleading that the claim is barred by the statute of limitations or that defense will be waived and the action may proceed even though the statute of limitations has expired. Once the statute of limitations has been raised as an affirmative defense, the plaintiff is required to prove that the SOL should not bar its claim.
