How technology can play a dangerous role in your divorce

Divorce is a difficult process, especially for California couples facing serious disputes and contentious battles over various issues. In some cases, one party in a divorce may attempt to gain private information or track the other person. He or she may believe that doing this will provide an advantage in negotiations and court battles, but often, the motivation for this is control and intimidation.

Cyberspying and using technology to stalk is becoming a more prominent problem in many divorces. In fact, there has been a distinct rise in the number of people using GPS navigation and other tools to track the movements and conversations of the other party during divorce. One of the main reasons for this is because it is rather inexpensive and easy to get the tools and programs necessary to do this.

Will this be a problem in your divorce?

Spyware is more easily accessible and affordable than ever before. Adding to this problem is that many couples share digital lives, including Facebook profiles, online banking accounts and more. If you are facing divorce and have concerns over your privacy and interests, consider the following:

  • People can use special applications, keyboard loggers and other tools to gain access to important information, including your private conversations.
  • It is smart to avoid shared computers. You should create separate accounts, change passwords and even update security questions during a divorce.
  • Installing spyware and GPS trackers is illegal in most cases, and if you suspect you are a victim, you have no time to lose in seeking the full protection of your interests.

You have the right to protect yourself during a divorce, including your private information. If you suspect spyware or stalking, you may find it beneficial to learn how you can fight back against these unfair tactics. During divorce, there is a lot at stake, and keeping certain information and correspondence private is important.

Navigating your complex divorce

You do not have to walk through your divorce alone. With help, you can pursue specific goals and confront issues such as an invasion of your privacy. It is normal to feel overwhelmed or violated after learning of spying or stalking, but you do not have to back down from your goals of a strong and secure post-divorce future.

It can be beneficial to start with a complete evaluation of your case. This can help you understand your options and allow you to understand the ways you can begin to protect yourself and your interests.
