Dear eman1971:

Greetings. Yes, text messages are very similar to e-mails and can be used in court, provided you can prove where the text message came from, went to, etc.

…And they were obtained legally.

If you found wife’s old cell phone from 6 months ago and text messages were on her old cell phone of an affair is the evidence legal to use in court. She left the cell phone in the house and did not take it with her when she moved out. If you read the text messages then confronted her about it can the text messages be legal to use in court if obtained that way.
