Just to give you some background on what Questioned Document Examination is:
A questioned document may be broadly defined as anything that bears marks, signs, or symbols which have meaning or conveys a message to someone and is in dispute. It is Forensic Document Examiners job to examine and compare handwriting, typewriting, inks, paper and office machines for the purpose of determining authorship, how the questioned document was prepared and its authenticity.
