Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Good afternoon. What type of proceeding is this for?
Thank you. As the victim, you would be required and needed to testify in the court proceeding, at trial. The video testimony would only be admissible, in a rear situation where you could/would not be available to testify at trial. ( i.e. you were sick and could pass away). If you file a lawsuit, you would be required to testify at the trial AND could be deposed as well. To video yourself now, may not be necessary, unless you are doing so because you are in fear of your life and think something may happen and if so, should contact the police and retain legal counsel.
You would need to try and authenticate it as much as possible. By that, state your name, time, date, that you are of sound mind and the reason you are doing this and try and show if it is ever found and necessary and relevant, it may be able to used, if needed.
