My daughter's father has petitioned the court for custody modification and is using text messages he downloaded against me. The text messages in question were not sent to him but, rather, were conversations that I had with other people. conversations that I would have with my girlfriends, boyfriends etc. He went back as far as two years ago.
In addition he made the statement that they are real time. I sat there while his attorney read them out loud. None were real time nor was there any time or date stamp on them.
I have friends that are horrified that their conversations are out there. There is nothing illegal in the text messages - just private conversations. And of course some steamy conversations.
Does he have the right to use them against me? Am i protected by the privacy law? Are the admissible in court?
