Hi - I am the respondent in my divorce (unfortunately). While I was away my husband broke into a lock up where some of my personal diaries and papers were. I had written my feelings about him and other personal info in there. He has not used this info in the petitition but has not, despite two requests, returned my items to my solicitor. I am assuming, because he got hold of them without consent he cannot use any information contained within but my question is... what can be done to get them back? I feel like they are being withheld to make me feel uncomfortable and as a veiled threat. They are old so I cannot remember what I wrote!!
Many thanks.

Hi Sparkling

Welcome to Wiki, but sorry you find yourself here.

I am sure you are right that information gained by stealing, copying etc is not admissable in court

As far as getting it back is concerned, i think the only thing you can do is what you are doing and keep requesting it back via your solicitors, the only other option is to report it to the police as he broke into your garage but do you have proof?

Difficult one, but at least you know he can''t use it.

Kind regards
xx
