I believe my wife has installed keylogger software on my computer and she is using GPS or some other tracking device to keep tabs on me.
Is this legal or is there a privacy invasion claim that can be used to my advantage?
First, let me preface my answer by stating that I am not licensed to practice law in the state of Indiana. The information in the article is general in nature. You should contact an attorney in your jurisdiction immediately to discuss your options.
Many states laws were drafted before the time that cell phones were in every pocket and tracking devises were portable. Judges often have to interpret laws to encompass new technologies.
In many areas, cases involving new technology such as cell phones and GPS tracking are groundbreaking and unprecedented.
Many states have made tracking or spying on a person, without their consent, illegal. In Michigan, where I practice, it is illegal to eavesdrop, install a tracking device on a car if you are the one doing the installation, or use information that was illegally obtained.
The remedy in a situation like this is usually found with your local prosecutor’s office. If you believe that you are being illegally tracked or spied upon you should contact the police or prosecutor in your area to begin an investigation.
You should contact an attorney who is licensed in your state to further discuss the specifics of your situation. Cordell & Cordell represents men in divorce nationwide.
