Forensic document examiners, are trained professionals who specialize in the analysis and comparison of handwriting and hand-printed text. They use a variety of techniques to examine and evaluate handwriting, including microscopic analysis of individual strokes and letters, comparison of writing samples, and analysis of writing habits and styles.
Handwriting experts can be called upon to determine the authorship of a handwritten document, to determine if a signature is genuine or forged, and to identify alterations or additions to a document. They can also identify various factors that may influence a person’s handwriting, such as age, medical conditions, and psychological factors.
The results of a handwriting analysis can be used in court as evidence in criminal and civil cases. However, it is important to note that while handwriting analysis can provide useful information, it is not always conclusive and can be subjective. Different experts may have different opinions on the same handwriting, and the accuracy of the analysis may depend on the quality and quantity of available handwriting samples.
