I have a question about...
I have a question about online harassment. My husband had a fling with a woman who is posting pictures online via Flickr and using that information to try and broadcast the relationship to family members. She does not own most of the pictures, they were taken by my husband. She is also illegally here - her Visa expired in January of 2014. Do we have any recourse legally?

Hi! I will be the professional that will be helping you today. I look forward to providing you with information to help solve your problem.
Good morning. If she is here illegally, you could report her and let Immigration looking into the situation. If she is arrested and charged and takes a plea deal or is convicted, it could subject her to deportation. However, that is between her and the government. Now, as far as the pictures, even though he may have taken them, he gave them to her and shared them with her, so there is nothing wrong with her posting them. It is not a situation where she is trying to sell them and make money. Even though she is posting them and trying to share them with family members, the truth is always a defense and if he had a fling with this women, it is at her discretion to share them. Clearly, it is the wrong thing to do but simply posting them and telling the truth, is not criminal. If she was trying to get money out of him by doing this, that would be a different story. I know your concern is harassment, so I have provided a link to the statutes below, so you can read them and apply them to the facts, to see if there is a basis to contact the police and try and get her charged

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
