Jeff McAdams' Divorce Survival Tips
11-1-10

Everything you say may be recorded,
so think before you speak…

It’s relatively common for individuals going through divorce to tape-record conversations. Since you don’t know when this may happen, you should be very careful about what you say and how you say it. If your spouse plays a recording of an angry tirade to the judge or court evaluator, with you yelling, screaming and making threats, it will damage your legal position. Even if your attorney can argue the act of tape-recording was illegal, the very implication that this sort of negative evidence exists is destructive. On the other hand, before you record any conversations yourself, you should first consult your attorney to be sure it’s not illegal, especially if the discussion is taking place across state lines.
