I would also make the following points: I am the one who filed for separation and divorce. My ex did not show up for the divorce hearing and my ex and I are divorced since March of 2001.
I have moved on my life. I spent several years very alone. Two and half years ago I finally met someone and subsequentlly remarried.
The thought that my ex may be holding on materials is disturbing as during our separation, he promised to someday tell our son what kind of woman his mother is and used some interesting verbage. My deal is this- not to rehash old things, but to move on. I do not know if he will use the materials he has to simply try to shame me to my biological son or my new family, or to try to black mail me into not pursuing child support for our son.
Bottom line for me is what is the legality of him breaking into accounts that were password protected and holding on to materials including communications with my attorney?
Is there recourse should he choose make public these materials? Or recourse should he try to influence decisions regarding our son through his use of these materials.
Or is there nothing legal, but it’s simply a matter of someone a grudge to hold and he could choose to harass and embarrass me at his will? (He was verbally and emotionally abusive much of the marriage - it was why I wanted out of the marriage.)
After all this time, have I no protection from him?
I’m just weary.
