Good evening! I can help you out with your legal question tonight. Did you purchase the computer when you were married?
I see, then it is community property and is "half" his. That would mean that he can't break into something that is already his and would be legal.
Legally it is just as much his property as it is yours.
Now, with regards XXXXX XXXXX information he obtained from the computer, if any, that may not all be admissible in the divorce.
But he has never used a computer and had someone else break into it
That won't matter in the eyes of the law. It will still be his and your computer.
I'm sorry I didn't have better news for you, but the law is the law.
Did you have any other questions tonight?
I see you are trying to leave so I guess you don't have any other questions.
Have a great night and please come back if you have any other questions for us.
Take care and please leave feedback before you go.
no I just think is unfair that he could do this and get all my pictures and documents that he had nothing to do with.
I agree, it is bad. Is he trying to use those against you?
I see that you are having a problem with the chat function. I'll switch the format so that it may work better for you.
