Tamper-Proof Docs

For sticky divorce and child custody issues, eSignOff on it with RPost, Registered Email®

If your adult children are going through a divorce, advise them to keep track of who said what before appearing in court. Often times, couples use email to communicate because it is fast and easy, and reduces emotional outburst since they are not seeing each other face to face. What your kids may not know is that the emails they are using will usually not hold up in court as evidence. Email is easily tampered with – a few clicks here and there can completely change the document. There is a very simple solution however, and it is called RPost. It works with Microsoft Office, Gmail, Hotmail and any other email system they could possibly use.

RPost provides several services that would make these important email communications court admissible. Registered email is just like registered mail, and the receipt can be used to show exactly who said what and when. Say, for example, a husband has finally agreed to having the children every other week, but he shows up in court saying he never said such a thing. In comes RPost’s registered receipt to show that indeed the husband had agreed to a specific custody arrangement. It is just as important when negotiating the division of assets.

RPost also provides a service called eSignOff, which allows users to sign documents electronically and legally, to avoid further explosive interactions. Signing these important documents online may give a reprieve to some spouses who would rather see as little of their soon-to-be-exes as possible. Using this service, one party can see where and when the other person has signed their document. Think of it like electronic paper.

Urge your children to take precautions when using email for important communications. RPost services can be used for other reasons as well, including settling debt with collectors or any other electronic communication that would require documentation to hold up in a courtroom.
