Forensic Document Examination
Reasearch Associates are aware that Forensic Document Examination is viewed as one of the most difficult and taxing areas of forensic science, having a rich and well established history in both British and international courts of law.
The discipline of Forensic Document Examination is extensive, involving the study of a broad range of document to determine authenticity, to expose counterfeits and forgeries and to reveal aspects of a document’s origin and history. Additional to handwriting and signature authentication, our forensic document examiners study alterations, inks utilised, impressions, printing, typewriting, photocopies and the wider products of modern office technology; which are generally areas of expertise beyond “handwriting experts”, who tend to work within more limiting disiplines. Typically, our forensic document examiners act as ‘expert witnesses’ in the legal arena.
