a parent would have removed the child from the situation, not filmed it.

Excellent point. In addition here is why justices rarely admit video / audio evidence.

1. Parent A calls Parent B and says: "YOU ARE AN A**HOLE AND STUPID!" Then Parent A hangs up the phone. (Recording device is off at this time.)

2. Parent A turns on recording device and then call Parent B calm and collected and says: "Would you be willing to swap time with me this weekend?" Parent B goes off on a tangent because of what Parent A did in Step 1.

3. Parent A, thinking they are the only person to have EVER done this before, tries to present evidence of Step 2 and Judge throws it out of court knowing this common tactic.

Good Luck!

recordings are double edged sword. It can either help or harm you. depends on the judges. most of the time judges don't like wasting their time listening to nonsense. Everything can be interpreted differently if taken out of the contest.
