Forensic documents analysis is employed to examine questioned documents, be they letters, application forms, identity documents to investigate alterations, forgery and potential origin. This work is often carried out in conjuction with our fingerprints service. In relation to documents we will:
- Examine items for the presence of altered handwriting/signatures;
- From indentations in pads/paper, identify what was written on the overlying document;
- Determine whether or not a person donating a reference sample of writing could have written all or part of a particular document;
- Examine torn/shredded items to determine how they may have originally fit together.
