    Answered . To protect yourself and any evidence that may be obtained during the phone conversations I would suggest you get a court order allowing you to monitor calls with someone else or at the minimum advising the other party they are being monitored.

    Answered . I would really suggest that,

    1) you have a court order; or

    2) tell the person that someone is listening to your calls.
