Indianapolis, IN asked in Divorce, Family Law, Child Custody and Child Support for Indiana

Q: How do you present text message evidence so it's admissible in court?

Myex filed a protection order as part of divorce dissolution. 14 pictures of sunburn entered as evidence. Have the texts stating I put sunscreen on the kids several times. Just want to show that to the judge. Also is sunburn really enough to keep an active father from his children for almost a month now? Does a protective order filing keep me from seeing them, hasnt been upheld by a judge yet the preljmis tomorrow?

A: If the text messages are communications between the parties to the case, you should be able to admit them with little trouble.
