The Durham novelist is serving a life sentence for killing his wife, Kathleen. His civil trial will get under way later in June.
A judge already found Peterson liable. The latest trial is to determine the amount of damages.
Caitlin Atwater's attorney wants to depose him before the civil trial. Atwater is Peterson's stepdaughter.
A judge will hear the request next week.
