Staten Island, NY asked in Child Custody for New Jersey

Q: If someone was fighting for custody, could they use video footage (from a baby camera inside the home/bedrooms,etc)

Showing domestic violence as evidence in court? Does the person have to consent to being recorded? Or just be aware of the camera? Do they have to know it’s recording and saving?

A: My suggestion is that you meet with a divorce law attorney to help educate yourself on how to present evidence at a domestic violence trial. Giving you a simple yes or no answer will not help you unless you know how and under what circumstance a court will permit it to be used.
