Hi, welcome to JustAnswer. My name is*****’m a barrister with 12 years of experience and I am happy to help with your question today.
do you mean with camera or audio?
It isnt illegal to record but there are restrictions under the DPA upon to what purpose it is used.
The only way it could be brought within the criminal law is to argue that it is part of a course of conduct amounting to coercive control. In and of itself, it wouldn't be enough.
Can I clarify anything for you?
It wouldn't amount to a criminal offence. It might well not be admissible in the family court but that is a different point. I can't imagine they encourage people with nothing better to do than record their spouses.
