About the event

A questioned document can take various forms, such as identification cards, contracts, wills, titles, deeds, seals, stamps, bank checks, handwritten correspondence, machine-generated documents (from photocopiers, fax machines, and printers), or currency. Forensic document examiners, when conducting examinations, require known specimens for comparison.

In cases involving handwriting, samples are categorized into specimen writing (dictated by investigators) and admitted writing (completed by subjects). These specimens are obtained under controlled conditions, ensuring close monitoring. Good sources of writing specimens include cancelled checks, letters, diaries, signed receipts, medical records, real estate contracts, tax records, or other signed legal documents.
