Default Audio Recording

I have this audio recording where I say to my ex in a really nice way to becareful not to show our kids her anxiousness and she flies off the handles and says she is going to stab me and stuff.... this was a year before the seperation and i was recording it to show my ex how she is kind of angry when we have conversations.

Would this be useful in court, my lawyer doesn't think so...

If you are a male, then no, it is useless. If you are a female, you can get him charged in no minutes for "uttering threats" and "threatening with death". Actually you don't even need a recording for that.

This sounds like it was in the past. Since you bring it up now, this would be for family court purposes then? No, it is not useful to you.

"...says she is going to stab me and stuff..."

Hard to glean real seriousness or context from this statement, but I'm guessing at the time, you did not really feel threatened. If at the time, you did really feel threatened, and your ex did in fact state she was going to stab you (threatened you harm), you should have raised this with the police back then. That may have had more traction later on, in family court, if the police were able to lay a "uttering threats" charge or some kind of related charge.

I'd forget about it now.

If she is the sort of person to threaten you once like that, then she is the sort to threaten you again if she loses her temper.

Threatening to stab someone is a criminal code offence. It doesn't matter if Links felt in danger or not; threats like that are not something that we are required to tolerate in this society.

I would save the recording so that if she threatens again, you can show a pattern of behaviour.

its useless

the judge will never hear it

you can play them on the internet for others to hear like I do

my friend John who is handicapped with bad knee/cane was knocked down in the court room by his x in front of Judge, his kids where running away from her and the old Judge still wouldn't give him custody, the court sherrif's detained him afterwards while she left without hassel

my x started screaming at me in court with fists clinched and red face while I spoke to Judge, she crossed the center line and Judge pressed the panic button, I was detained for questioning while she went free.

we are pedophiles, sex offenders, child abusers , wife beaters , cheaters, womenizers, oppressors , it will take 200 years for this prejudice to 'evolve' past that no matter how common sense your position and evidence is.


think about it - where is the one place recorders are not allowed - court !!

just image how you-tube would light up with 5000 + videos a day of judges giving berserk judgments in favor of 1 sex over the other ...

WARNING! Open Mic Sessions Now Appearing At A Courtroom Near You!
The next time you're in court, be very careful what you say! Effective January 2, 2013, DRD’s are in place and active in all Superior Court courtrooms in the Toronto region (in fact, across the province).

...

The good news is that counsel will be able to get complete and annotated recordings of the evidence on CD-ROMs right away at the end of each day (no waiting for transcripts – in fact there will be no transcripts, unless specifically requested by the judge or counsel. Note also that there will be a nominal charge for the CD-ROMs.) The potentially bad news is that the 17 or so extremely sensitive microphones placed in each courtroom will be simultaneously recording everything (that means EVERYTHING!) anyone says, including comments by lawyers at counsel tables and discussions with their clients, if they happen to be too close to the open microphones. So remember, if you can’t say anything nice, write it on a Post-It Note!
Good Luck!
Tayken

Your comments are useless. The judge doesn't have to hear it, you submit a transcript as part of your affidavit. The recording remains available if the transcript is challenged. The transcript may be sworn as true and accurate by a notary who listens to the recording.

Many people need to resort to restraining orders from the courts when their former partners threaten or harrass them. If this is the case, it is wise to have evidence. Keep the evidence.

tayken, you missed the point - its called "you" tube for a reason - not 'gov allowed tube' , research it please and get back to me

once again men/fathers I can not stress enough get yourself a reference for a lawyer from another man/father whom was represented well

my 'collaborative' lawyers would not acknowledge nor transcript anything, when I insisted their 'lacky' therapist reviewed it she said they couldn't hear anything then handed me a $1200 bill

being an engineer with 3 post secondary 'with distinction' diplomas I offered to fix their computer or iphone or perhaps direct them to a website where 30,000 people have downloaded portions of it and said WTF, I even offered them a specialist recommendation that could assist them with their hearing problems.

this is what happens men/fathers when you think the system is fair - that its 'just' and we are all treated as equals , once your surrounded by those that favor 1 sex over the other your done.

this is why Canada needs to adopt a '50/50 access/division court ordered up front' to put these legal parasites out of business , then posts like keeping audio recording wont be required .. think about it and who gains by not doing it.

peace out
