Florida divorce attorney Russell Knight releases a new article(http://divorceattorneynaplesfl.com/can-my-husband-or-wife-see-my-text-messages/) about obtaining copies of a spouse’s text messages and how these text messages can be used during divorce proceedings. According to the lawyer, spouses are often curious about the future when they’re going through a divorce. Another question that the spouse may ask is whether or not they will have access to their partner’s private text messages.
According to the Florida divorce attorney, “At the time of this writing, 2019, everyone communicates via text message. Text messages are electronic messages transmitted over SMS (short message service) or Internet connection. Text messages are almost always transmitted via smartphone.”
The lawyer explains that text messages can be used as any other communication. Text messages are often just a series of zeros that are recorded and stored somewhere, so they can be retrieved even after the owner turns off the phone. Once the owner turns their phone on, the messages will remain where they were.
Attorney Russell Knight also mentions that text messages are frequently used in divorce and parenting cases. Text messages can often be used to prove that one spouse said something. The court may be able to review conversations between the parties.
The lawyer adds that the service provider might provide a copy of text messages after a subpoena has been served. After the subpoena was served, the phone company can provide copies of several months' worth of conversations. Attorney Knight mentions that the lawyer may be allowed to ask the court for text messages to be revealed via formal discovery. Formal discovery refers to when one party is obliged by the other to disclose anything. This includes text messages.
“Requesting text messages can often be a tricky thing. A party that requests text messages may also have their own text messages requested as well. When requesting text messages be sure that your own texts will not implicate you of something as well,” says the divorce attorney.
The Florida divorce lawyer stresses that it is important to consult an experienced attorney when dealing with family law matters. A skilled attorney might be able to help clients understand their rights and responsibilities during the divorce or separation process.
