Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
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.
Are you responding to them?
If you are responding then that is not harassment.
That is just an unpleasant conversation which is not against the law.
In terms of hacking, if this is genuinely hacking then it would not be possible to tell that it was him. You can always change your passwords.
He probably will say things to the children that are unpleasant. That isn't against the law I'm afraid.
If you real question is whether this amounts to coercive control then it does not on the basis of the information you are providing so far.
Can I clarify anything for you?
That isn't hacking. That is just a computer misuse offence maybe.
He can see what you are doing on social media anyway I presume as can anybody else. The solution to that is not to post on it.
Change your passwords and usernames which would put a stop to that.
You could try to report it but there are more immediate steps that would be more effective.
Does he need to have contact with you over the children?
Well, you could not respond to any message not about the children.
Or you could just use a separate sim card to discuss the children.
Although that is probably more hassle than it is worth.
Just plain ignore him unless it is about the children. He will get bored quickly enough and also it is quite dismissive to just ignore somebody.
