I am theCustomerof 3 children. I am not employed

This answer was rated:

I am theCustomerof 3 children. I am not employed at the moment and receive nor do I want money for their care. What I need to know is this. The father of the kids records all incoming and outgoing phone calls from his home in Ozark, MO. regardless of whether he is home and on the line or not. No one in the family gave him permission to do this, nor can they stop him. Is it legal for him to do this? His wife earns a small amount of money caring for an invalid, she pays all of the bills, electric, phone, food, clothing etc... currently there are 5 children still living at home, not all are minors. I am taking care of 3 right now in Colorado, I did have a 4th but she recently married.
Both CO and MO are one party consent states, meaning that only one party to the conversation needs to consent to the recording of the calls. However, this does not give him the right to record the calls where he is not the party and if he is not the party in the call and none of the parties to the call consent, then you need to file a complaint with the DA in MO.
