if i went to court with facts that i have wrote down on a daily basis, would it matter if it was typed or handwritten?

im writing down all this stuff that is said on a family member, possible getting a restraining order.

type it or write it?

would the judge want it to be long or as short as possible (the day to day conversations)?

  • Type it...I'd make a cover sheet, short and sweet, the judge won't want to deal with a long blah blah blah to read. Have the details as back up if requested.

  • It doesnt matter as long as you document facts and keep to the point. Judges arent going to read long journals or opinions. I dont know what your documenting for, but lets say its for custody or something. Then you would write Jan 6th: received harassing phone call from Mr. X and was told XYZ.

  • hand written and dated, like in a journal form. write only facts, not what you think or feel about it, and put in quotes what other people said.

  • It doesn't really matter unless (like me) your handwriting isn't very good and difficult to read, if that is the case you should type so it is legible.

  • It doesn't matter. Just be aware that the personal journals or documentation are not always admissiable in court. They will be used to show a pattern of behavior but may not be used as evidence.
