When Can You Record Another Person in New York State?

Posted By The Law Office of Kelley M. Enderley, PC || 21-Dec-2015

I am often asked whether or not one can record another person. This issue comes up most often during custody issues when allegations are contradictory as to what is being said between parents. The answer to this question can be complicated but the short answer is one can record another person so long as one party to the conversation knows that it is being recorded.

As such, a recorder cannot be set up in a room and record two people who do not know about the recording. Engaging in such behavior can lead to serious criminal charges. So long as one party knows that the recording is occurring it does not have to be disclosed to the other individual engaged in the conversation.
