I've an upcomming DVRO hearing with my boyfriend. In the associated criminal case which was dismissed he was presented a document by the DA to which he replied "that's not my hand writing." I'm considering having a document examiner review the doc against other writing to confirm it was in fact his writing and as such lied to the DA. The expense for the analysis is substantial enough, but can I get the analysis into evidence without having to pay the examiner to testify?
To get it into evidence generally the document examiner has to be present and subject to cross-examination.
Not unless your boyfriend agrees. Any witness has to be in court and available to testify. However, since it is a DVRO, you might have the expert prepare a declaration under oath attesting to the facts. It is better than nothing.
