Forensic Document Examination Services for documents written in Hindi and Punjabi – Document Examiner Will Testify as Expert Witness For Court Proceedings in India or Canada

 

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, November 23, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Docufraud Canada (www.docufraudCanada.ca) announces its acceptance of documents for forensic examination written in either Hindi or Punjabi language.  While Docufraud does not offer translation services, analysis provided by our certified and qualified document examiner can be submitted to the court in both India or Canada.

 

We’re seeing an increased level of international travel and immigration to and from Canada.  Docufraud staff often interact with citizens who maintain ties not only in Canada but also in their country of origin. Canada is host to a large Indian community and not surprising, most Indians maintain ties with family and relatives who remain back in India.

 

Don’t let the name Docufraud Canada give the impression we only provide services in Canada.  We are a professional company providing document examination services to the global community.  We have provided court accepted forensic reports in such countries as Albania, Bahamas, Barbados, India, Jamaica, Lebanon, Pakistan, Poland, Qatar, Tanzania, Turks and Caicos, and others.

 

These days our global community is truly global.  Consequently the same legal matters that originate in one country overlap into the other.  These commonly are estate matters such as a Last Will or marital and child custody matters including disposition of assets, business concerns and of course many others.  Communicating in English especially with complex legal matters can be a challenge.

 

Docufraud Canada has employed the professional services of Dr. Shabnam Preet Kaur with the title of Senior Forensic Document Examiner.  Dr. Kaur has independently examined over 100 questioned document cases in Canada and India. This involves over 3000 document exhibits, which include high profile cases such as the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), Law Society of Ontario, Department of Defense, Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), Banks, Postal Departments, Staff Selection Commission (SSC) & numerous corporations.

 

Dr. Kaur was directly appointed as Scientist ‘B’ (Documents) Gazetted Officer by the Government of India at a British era laboratory in Shimla as the world’s second oldest forensic institution after Scotland Yard.  Now being merged with Central Forensic Science Laboratory, Chandigarh, India. Dr. Kaur has provided Forensic Examination Services throughout Canada and India including, Delhi, Chandigarh, Haryana and Punjab, also Ontario, Alberta, British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Yukon Territory, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia.  Being Multilingual and fluent in Hindi and Punjabi, she has examined documents written in other languages including Hindi, Punjabi, Korean and Chinese.

 

Docufraud Canada is top ranked as Canada’s premiere Forensic Document Examination company.  Dr. Kaur has provided expert opinions to the court on multiple occasions.  We have analysed and examined thousands of documents brought to us by lawyers, corporations, government agencies, regulatory bodies and the everyday person.  We examine handwriting to determine authenticity, altered documents to uncover shady dealings and signatures to detect forgery.

 

The skills of document examination can be complex, the outcome can have lasting implications.  There are many characteristics a trained examiner looks for in a signature.  The obvious characteristics are slant, spacing of words, line quality of the strokes or a flourish at the end of a signature. The forensic examiner also looks for unnatural tremors, hesitations, patching, retouching, slowly drawn strokes or guidelines of various forms in the writing which may indicate signs of traced forgery.  Misspelling of a name, (yes we’ve seen it) or pen pauses and  pen lifts as a person struggles to form the general appearance of a signature.  A genuine signature should be smoothly and fluently executed. The elderly or persons with certain medical conditions have their own challenges.  The forensic examiner will observe and respond to these changes in ability.

 

The implications of a fraudulent document has great effect on the individuals before the court.  The outcome affects real people and will have lasting impact to their lives.  In many instances, it could be a life long impact.  We understand those concerns but how does a judge make a determination and render judgement in favour to one and against the other.  There are many factors but one thing always holds great weight with the court.  Did both parties agree to the terms of the agreement and sign their acceptance of said agreement?

 

To prove such a case requires evidence to substantiate the claim.  Simply put, is the signature or handwriting genuine or not genuine.  Was it traced, affixed by cut & paste or by some other means.  Technology is improving daily, Dr. Kaur employs special image processing software that can detect even the most sophisticated attempt at forgery.  No matter if your legal dispute originates in India or in Canada, we are here to provide a professional forensic examination of your documents, regardless of what language they’re written in.

Docufraud Canada Examiner Recognized and Qualified as an Expert Witness

Docufraud Canada Examiner Recognized and Qualified by Canadian Court as an Expert Witness in Forensic Document Examination

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, September 12, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dwayne Strocen, President of Docufraud Canada announces its forensic document examiner. Dr. Shabnam Preet Kaur has once again been recognized in court as an expert witness. Testifying before Justice Emery of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice, Dr. Kaur’s qualifications as a forensic document expert were accepted and allowed to testify and present evidence as an expert witness.

Rules of evidence which govern expert witnesses are similar in most jurisdictions. Perhaps worded slightly different they comprise the same principals. In Ontario and across Canada an expert must satisfy the court of the following conditions:
• The expert must demonstrate a proficiency in the field to which evidence is to be presented to the court;
• An Expert shall provide evidence that is fair, unbiased and impartial;
• An Expert shall provide evidence that is related only to matters that are within the expert’s area of expertise; and
• An Experts overriding duty is to the court regardless of who may have engaged their services.

Generally, testimony by an expert witness is divided into two parts. First is the Voir Dire which is needed to establish the experts qualifications to provide evidence germane to the matter before the court. If all parties are satisfied, the judge will deliver his ruling to allow the expert to present their evidence. In other words, the examiner is recognized as an expert and is Qualified to Testify.

Part two is the testimony in chief. In most instances the experts analysis or forensic report will have been submitted prior to the parties day in court. All parties will have been provided ample time to review and dissect the evidence about to be presented. During testimony, Dr. Kaur’s official forensic report was reviewed in-depth allowing her to elaborate and confirm the results of her examination of the documents provided. Results of the analysis was read to the court culminating in evidence that was deemed to be fair, unbiased and impartial.

While attempts of deception are becoming more and more brazen, the forensic document examiners overriding duty is to the court in-spite of the party who has engaged our services. Dr. Shabnam Preet Kaur provided testimony in a professional and seasoned manner.

One aspect that will not change is the basic rule of law, particularly as it pertains to the use of forensic experts. Docufraud Canada employs fully accredited examiners who are specialists in handwriting analysis, signature verification and the examination of altered documents.

Docufraud continues to review documents, and prepare for court either in the presentation of our notarized reports or simply to confirm the legitimacy of a document or signature. Our work continues and presenting a winning legal strategy is not dependent on chance or a winning smile. It is won by presenting all of the evidence in a manner that is clear and concise. Docufraud continues to represent Canadians in a variety of matters before the court and we can do so for you.

Docufraud Canada Announce Document Examination Service Continue as Judicial System Re-Open for Civil & Criminal Proceedings

Document Examination Service

 

 

Forensic Examination services continue for handwriting analysis, signature verification and examination of forged and fraudulent documents

 

Toronto, Ontario, Canada June 25, 2020 – Dwayne Strocen, President of Docufraud Canada (docufraudcanada.ca/ ) says Provinces have begun the gradual re-opening of courts for both civil and criminal proceedings. As this opening resumes across the country an enormous backlog of cases present new challenges in the field of document examination services.

 

Problem one says Strocen, is “how to keep people safe”. Many jurisdictions will be enhancing their use of video conferencing.  One source revealed that while video conferencing is not new, the judicial system faces enormous cost outlay for purchase and installment of the technology.

 

The COVID-19 experience also requires that plexiglass screening is likely to be installed to protect staff, attorneys, litigants and members of the jury.  While all of this is likely to be similar across each Province, there will also be differences.

 

One aspect that will not change is the basic rule of law, particularly as it pertains to the use of forensic experts and document examination.  Docufraud Canada employs fully accredited examiners who are specialists in handwriting analysis, signature verification and the examination of altered documents.

 

During this time of stay-at-home and work-from-home orders, the judicial system has not ground to a complete stop.  Legal matters continue to be filed, attorneys continue to prepare for court and document examiners continue to examine allegations of fraudulent documents, signature forgeries and contested wills including holographic wills.

 

Docufraud Canada is no different in that we continue to review documents, and prepare for court either in the presentation of our notarized reports or simply to confirm the legitimacy of a document or signature.  Dwayne Strocen also notes the increase in matters related to employment contracts.  This is a time where employment stress is compounded by layoffs and general uncertainty.

Forensic Document Examiner Necessary to Successfully Litigate Contested Will

Litigate Contested Will

 

Forensic Document Examiner Necessary to Successfully Litigate a Contested Will or to Prove a Document or Signature is is in fact a Forgery

Toronto, Ontario, June 22, 2020 – Docufraud Canada says successful litigation must meet a list of criteria before the court to demonstrate each of the parties have met their burden of proof.  One of the more important aspects can be to determine if a suspected forged document or signature is in fact legitimate.  For this, you may need a forensic signature analysis with a court qualified handwriting expert.

As with any solid foundation where credibility is critical. Establishment of the legitimacy of the documents in question go a long way to demonstrate credibility of the parties involved.   Confirmation to the court in litigation is to establish beyond a doubt whether the document in question is genuine or fraudulent.  This is never more important for the court than when each party claim the other has broken the spirit of a contractual obligation.  A “He Said – She Said” scenario.

Whether this is to litigate a contested a will.  Or perhaps to attempt to demonstrate a document is fraudulent.  Or to establish if signatures have been forged or altered.  Establishing the burden of proof is part of your pre-trial preparation.  A forensic examination is needed by a qualified examiner whose written report will be entered into evidence and on the record.

A Forensic Document Examiner is also known as a Questioned Document Examiner.  They are an individual who can demonstrate to the court they have met certain standards of training and expertise.  Based on these standards, the court will recognize the examiner as an Expert Witness.  This standing has greater weight with the court for one basic reason.  The examiner must also certify and swear the examination in question was made without bias to either party and was impartial.

The examiner also recognizes their responsibility to provide this un-biased factual evidence to the court.  This is done in spite of which party engaged their service.  Presenting a winning legal strategy is not dependent on chance or a winning smile.  It is won by presenting all of the evidence in a manner that is clear and unemotional.

About Docufraud Canada:

We are a Canadian company and one of Canada’s premiere certified and court appointed forensic examiners.  Our examiners have many hours of court experience and our forensic reports have been court recognized in all provinces throughout Canada and the U.S.A.  In addition, our forensic reports have been accepted and recognized by the courts in Bahamas, Barbados, Jamaica, Turks and Caicos, India, Iran, Pakistan, Poland and others.

Forensic Document Examination. Certified and Court Qualified

Forged Documents

 

Forged Documents, Counterfeit Goods, Cyber Intrusion Including Identity Theft Have Become a Symbol Of Our 21st Century Culture

Toronto, Ontario, March 03, 2020 – Forged documents, counterfeit knock-offs and internet SCAMS have grown to such an alarming part of our life.  It seems that issues of forgery have become a fixture and a symbol of our 21st century culture.  Docufraud Canada announces certified and court qualified forensic document examiners?

Dwayne Strocen, President of Docufraud Canada a Canadian based specialist in Forensic Document Examination has seen a noticeable increase in reported crimes associated with identity theft, internet cyber intrusion and instances of signature forgery.  Although many of these crimes should be reported to the police, Mr. Strocen wonders if the name Docufraud Canada has some allure for the public to call with reports of wrong doing.

Nothing it seems is off-limits to a person intent on deceiving or defrauding others.  There is no boundary to age, gender, income level or status in the community.  We’ve all received the slick  calls and read the e-mails asking us to click the link or some new way to deceive us into revealing personal information.  When will it end?

It seems the R.C.M.P and local police readily admit to being completely overwhelmed.  This is partly due to the fact that many of these nefarious individuals and organizations are not domiciled here in Canada.  They are often located in other countries where laws are lax and ineffective.  Yet in every case there are Canadians who live among us who will aid and abet by assisting with money collection, wire transfers and storage of stolen goods and counterfeit property.

Technology has provided us with time and labour saving devices.  But technology has also evolved our world into something not envisioned by the creators of the internet.  If a 3-D printer can create a usable human organ for transplant then it certainly can fraudulently create a new licence plate for a stolen car, or perhaps a gun to fool airport screening.  If a thief can manufacture counterfeit products so it cannot be distinguished from the original then there is no limit except by the thief’s own imagination.

Forgery

According to Mr. Strocen, here is where some of the problem stems.  Docufraud receives call after call from individuals who despite reading and being aware of such activity continue to distribute their personal information.  The greatest sources of voluntary information is social media sites, dating sites and retail shopping sites.  If a retailer asks for your e-mail address, phone number or mailing address, he says don’t give it.  Even if the clerk insists, it’s none of their business.

This information is used to illegally apply for bank loans and credit cards.  It’s used to purchase vehicles, motor homes, expensive watches, and other large ticket items.  And in every instance you are responsible for the outstanding payments and the accumulated debt.  A significant percentage of Docufraud’s business is from individuals who have fallen victim and need to prove the signature on the expensive purchase was not theirs and indeed a forgery.  In addition to the time and stress, the court appearances and legal costs, there is a ruined credit rating.

Docufraud Canada would like to put out this warning to all Canadians. Be vigilant and be a smart consumer.  We truly hope you do not need our services.  But if you do, you can count on us to assist with establishing your true identity.  We can’t fix your credit rating but we do have certified and court qualified forensic examiners ready and able to do our part in setting things right.
