Re: social workers and child custody disutes

In North Carolina, you may tape any conversation that you are a party to (that you participate in). You don't need the other party's permission.

BE CAREFUL about this on the phone because if the other party is in another state you could be breaking their law -- that is how Linda Tripp in the Monica Lewinski case got in trouble.
