Forensic Handwriting/Signature and Document Analysis, Handwriting Analysis

Forensic Handwriting/Document and Signature Analysis and Examination is the application of scientific methods and techniques to investigate whether handwriting or signatures or documents are genuine, or fraudulent. Examinations are completed to determine whether disputed documents or writings have been altered, traced, simulated or cut and paste. Has information been inserted or erased?

A handwriting analyst uses handwriting features for personality profiling. Handwriting Analysis is the psychology of handwriting.
