hi Jo, thank you. So my husband planted a voice activated dicatphone in our kitchen (not sure how long for) to record my calls/conversations at home. I asked him for separation months back and he wouldn't accept it and since then have renewed a friendship with an old school pal which he has interpreted as adultery. I just want to know if it is 'legal' for him to record conversations without my consent, and then play them to others and use in court against me? I feel like it is a total violation of privacy to myself and my friends who have been in my house and want to know if there is anything I can do to stop him or to put this in my divorce papers?
hi, what grounds what I sue him on? is there a particular 'act' I can inform him of? he is constantly threatening to use it in court and also keeps telling me he is playing it to others which is really such an invasion of my privacy I cannot tell you. If you can give me as much legal jargon as possible to throw at him I would be grateful.
can I report him to anyone to stop him from using it any further? I am concerned for my ongoing privacy as he threatened to post the recordings on facebook at one point. I'm not sure where to turn to stop him.
thank you Alex you have been very helpful
