Can I log on to my spouse’s email to find evidence?

It may be tempting to use your spouse’s emails against them, but it is not advisable. This is especially important if you and your spouse are going through legal action such as a separation or divorce. Your spouse may have communications with their lawyer through email, and to read them would be to violate solicitor-client privilege. The court does not look kindly on those who violate their spouse’s privacy in order to further their own claims in litigation, and may even order costs against you for misconduct.
