My wife discovered some text messages I sent that I shouldn't have, that were nonetheless completely harmless and went nowhere beyond a few messages (honest!). She was very upset about it and took photos of my phone messages (unbeknownst to me, of course) and then later had private detective look into it.
Yes, there are some trust issues obviously, but this is nothing that will end our marriage
Still, I'm a little burnt up at the idea of some slimy private detective having a file folder in his cabinet with my name and photos of my cell phone screen. I want to ask my wife to have the detective destroy the folder, but I don't know what my rights or her rights would be to ensure it is destroyed.
While you might think it is very unlikely, my concern is that the detective could someday use the screenshots to make trouble for me or extort money or sth like that.
My wife already understands that what I did was pure cyber-stupid, and that I would not act on anything like that in reality (and I wouldn't!), I don't know what this unknown person could or would do, but it could be damaging. So again, need to know my rights as the subject of this investigation and my wife's rights as the client.
