Customer Question

Hi, I have been divorced since last year July, although I am still living in the matrimonial home with my ex, but on different floors. I have had to do this because I cannot move out until the house is sold, we both cannot afford to buy each other out. In November 2011 I was granted an injunction by the family court, because he had started to abuse me. Since then he has not come near me nor spoken to me. The matrimonial home is under offer and we are about to exchange, I took some paintings off the wall that were on my court list of items that belonged to me and I noticed that the backing of one painting had been cut all the way around and the prongs holding the glass in place had all been opened. When I bought this painting and it was hung on the wall the backing was not like this. I have felt for the past year that my ex husband was spying on me, listening to my phone conversations. Down loading my emails. I stopped using the land line, but he kept going down into the cellar for no reason. Although I had checked down there, I could not see if he had any devices down there. Now having found the painting, it is obvious what he has been doing. My injunction is still in place, has he committed an offence by doing this? Any advice appreciated. I feel violated by his actions. Sonja

Thanks for using JustAnswer. My name is Claire, I will do whatever I can to answer your question.
I am sorry - what does his abuse of the painting have to do with the injunction?

Because I think it was bugged, prior to the injunction he had already taken the hard drive from the family computer and sent it to a company to get information off. My old mobile phone, which was smashed during and argument, instigated by him, he managed to take the sim card, which he also sent to a company to gain the information. I think the whole house is bugged!

Whilst I can understand your concerns sadly unless there is conclusive evidence that he did this there is no action that you can take
