Are you rendering with mental ray, or Maya software, or Vray perhaps?

If mental ray, you should be using render passes instead of render layers. The pass will render alongside the main render with very little additional time, if any. It will spit out two file, your main render and the depth pass. "Camera Depth" or "Camera Depth Remapped" are the passes to use. You may get a blank, black image depending on your depth settings. I render to .tif but a lot of people use .exr these days.

Here is a thread on depth passes and maybe it will help!
