If you call a person within your home and record the conversation is it evidence in court. This is done without knowledge of the person you are calling and record it
You are in a one-party consent state, meaning you can do it without the other party's consent if you are a party to the conversation.
While it's legal , in order to use such a recording as evidence there are authentication steps required before the recording can be entered into evidence. It!s not automatic.
I agree with Ms. Mendini. One party to a conversation may record it and attempt to introduce the recording as evidence

North Carolina is a one-party consent state meaning that only one party to the conversation needs to consent to the recording, such as the person recording the conversation. This rule has a number of issues and exceptions. For example, if the phone call is with someone outside of the state of North Carolina, that state's law could apply. There are many states that do require both or all parties to the conversation need to consent to the recording. This is only further complicated when there is no proof of the location of the callers. For example, although a person has a cell phone with a North Carolina number, this person could be in Las Vegas when making a call. Therefore, this opens the door to the possibility that Nevada law applies.
