I believe my husband has hacked into my email account and is reading my emails between myself and my solicitor, can he use this information in court?

Wow. How do you know?

I'd speak to your solicitor asap for advice.

Create a new email asap and ask you solicitor to use that email.

Most of my solicitors emails were classified as private & confidential and only for me.

I reckon he'd get in trouble for that. Ask your solicitor for advise?

Change your password....

Can you not just change your password?

If he's set up his email address to receive any password changes it might not work just changing password.

XDH hacked my computer and read all my emails. He installed some software on it at some stage - it was a nightmare and far more complex than just changing a password.

I reported it to the police and got a case number (I had some evidence including a photo of my emails on his laptop screen). They took it seriously and would have investigated but I just wanted it logged at that stage.

I can't answer your court question but would imagine any contents would not be admissible in court.

Well then... log in check the account settings... for the backup email address... screenshot the proof (if it exists)... change password.

Job done.

Is there any chance that he has put a keylogger on your computer or on the wifi thingy? If he has, then setting up a new account wouldn't stop him getting access. Does he have access (or a key) to your home? If so, then you might want to consider buying a tablet and stashing it at work etc, so that you only use it away from the home, then using that to set up a new email account.
