Confused Recording phone conversations between child and parent.

I am in a custody dispute over my two children and wanted to know if I believe that their father is trying to manipulate, pursuade them, lie to them or tell them that I've said things that I havn't, if I could record their phone conversations to prove this. If I tell the courts that he's doing this he'll just tell them that he isn't and stop doing it over the phone but keep doing it in person. I need to prove what kind a parent he is. What are my options?
I live in Ontario Canada.

I would call the police or prosecutor in your area and ask if you can record firstly. They will tell you.

I had over three years of taped phone calls between my ex and I thrown out of court, even though he knew I was taping, all because I didn’t say at the start of each and every call “this call could be taped and used in court” My ex now sees it as a big joke that I say that, but the whole tone of the calls has changed, he is now respectful and the model ex the judge was lead to believe him to be… if I had only known that from the start I could have been spared years of harassing calls.

Unhappy Re: Recording phone conversations between child and parent.

Wow.. that is shocking and more then a little depressing (considering my own situation) to hear.
I'm so sorry to hear that you had to go through that you did only to have him not only get away with it but make it into a joke.
Thank you so much for your reply.

There are only 13 states that you can record phone conversation with out the other party having knowledge. I know because I researched it. My ex husband tried to try some of those similar stunts.

ALSO----- check with your state attorney general's office or the local police dept. before taping--See also "taping phone calls" on the site-- http://www.worldlawdirect.com/article/1042 -- if you can't tape calls then you normally cannot tape conversations--if you can tape calls then check with your State Attorney General for the laws regarding in-person conversations--

My ex husband has been recording my conversations between me and my two boys. The tapes have been altered and stopped in certain areas and started again in other areas. He is trying to manipulate our conversations. His attorney is trying to get them admitted under the new statute that you can record your child's phone conversations if they are dealing with a sexual predator (mainly due to Internet) or someone is trying to do physical harm to your child. None of which are our case but that is the "loop" hole they are trying to use. Any laws against this. Neither of us knew they were being recorded until we entered court for a temporary hearing. We are in the State of Georgia.

That is clearly not the rationale that allows him to tape. You should ask the judge to exclude that "chopped up" manipulated evidence and impose a fine. And you should file criminal charges for illegal taping.
