Just a quick question. My partner has recorded a conversation between him and his ex which proves she is not encouraging contact or being stern about her son having contact as the judge suggested at the last hearing.
Could my partner use this recording in court at the next hearing as without a doubt she will say that shes been encouraging and trying all she can to get contact back on track?
You don''t need the other parties permission to record a face to face conversation, you can''t however play it to a third party. What you can do is make a transcript of the conversation to present to the court if you feel you need to. If yr ex then denies the version in the transcript you can let the judge know there is a recording and let him decide whether to listen to it. This has been done before and would make yr ex look very silly, you may find she suddenly ''remembers'' that she did say what''s suggested when she realises you can prove it.
