Hello and thank you for contacting JustAnswer. My name is Michael; I look forward to assisting you today.
By continuing, you acknowledge that I am not providing legal advice and can only comment on the law in general.

I'm sorry to hear about your situation. Where has she shared the pics? Who has seen them? And what kind of misfortune have you suffered based on the unauthorized sharing?


Customer: replied 11 months ago.
She,has shared them with a few of her friends and my ex wife. She has threatened to share our messages from instagram and messenger to my coworkers and boss which could possiblu get me fired or be forced to resign. I haven't suffered any misfortune yet.

Thank you.

There aren't any laws (statutes) that specifically address adults sharing pictures in Alabama. To prevail in a case like this, you'd need to file a civil suit against the person, alleging that they publicly disseminated private materials without your permission and that you were harmed as a result. You would have to prove the person send them to the other person in the form of testimony from the person who received the messages. If you lost a job based on this type of disclosure, you may receive some type of compensation for those lost wages. I would speak to an Alabama civil attorney about your options.

I hope this helps.
