Preparing For Your Document Examination

What you need to provide your document examiner:

  • Document type; Will, mortgage, agreement, etc.
  • What is the alleged date of the document?
  • Is it an original with wet ink signatures or a copy?
  • Is it a PDF or photocopy?
  • Do you have the document in possession?

Questioned Signatures

  • Do you think the signatures are forged or altered?
  • You should have as many known signatures of an individual as possible for comparison. We recommend 20-30, but at least 15.
  • Get known signature examples from other documents, checks, or known writings.
  • Get signature examples from around the same time period as the questioned document, also prior to and after the date of the questioned document.
  • Documents with wet ink signatures are best.

Paper Examination

  • We can date the paper of documents by comparing them to the paper from other documents with a known date, or by matching them to examples in our database.
  • Original documents are necessary to date or compare the document to others from the same time period in order to determine if the document is authentic.
  • We can match photocopies to other know sources of paper.
  • We can match the paper from a questioned mortgage note to copies of your mortgage documents, they all came from the same paper source and should match.
