THE EASY ACCESS TO RECORDING DEVICES CREATES A TEMPTATION TO USE ONE TO RECORD CONVERSATIONS TO GAIN THE UPPER HAND IN A DIVORCE. DON'T GIVE INTO THIS TEMPTATION.
RECORDING A PRIVATE OR PUBLIC CONVERSATION WITHOUT THE CONSENT OF ALL PARTIES IS A CLASS FOUR FELONY IN ILLINOIS PUNISHABLE BY UP TO THREE YEARS IN PRISION. ALTHOUGH PRISION MAY BE AN UNLIKELY SENTENCE FOR A FIRST OFFENDER. YOU DO NOT WANT TO BE CAUGHT IN THAT SITUATION.
DON'T EVER RECORD A LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER OR JUDGE OR SIMILIAR OFFICIAL IN THE PERFORMANCE OF THEIR DUTY
YOU KNOW THAT THE POLICE, CAN RECORD YOU IN PUBLIC OR IN PRIVATE. THE SAME IS NOT TRUE FOR YOU. RECORDING A POLICE OFFICER OR SIMILAR OFFICIAL WHILE THEY ARE ON DUTY IS A CLASS ONE FELONY PUNISHABLE BY UP TO 15 YEARS IN PRISION
