My deployed husband, who is a captain in the army, has changed the password XXXXX our verizon cell phone account, and has removed me as a manager of the account. I can now only see my phone calls and no others. Do I have a right to obtain these call records, and if so, who do I contact to get them and how? I don't want a divorce, just peace-of-mind that he's not cheating, which he says he's not, but said he wants to control me and that's why he changed the password.
State/Country relating to question: Ohio
Nothing, I don't want to waste time so I'm doing the research first.
Thanks for the chance to help. I am an attorney with over 12 years military law experience.Depends....In whose name is XXX XXXXXXX? In his or in yours?
He is the account owner and I was an account manager, but now I'm just a member. I'm still on the account, but just unable to see his calls.
If he is the account owner, he can modify the account as he likes. Verizon has that policy. You have no independent legal right to the phone records.Now, if you were to divorce, and were to allege adultery, you could then subpoena the records...so you could get them potentially...but again that would be pursuant to a subpoena during a contested divorce.As well, his commander can subpoena the records if there is evidence of adultery...under federal law the commander can order an investigation which could also include a subpoena for the records. But this would only happen if there was information to suggest evidence of misconduct would be found in the phone records.Sorry to have to bear bad news.
