Privacy Within a Relationship and in Family Proceedings
Loretta Ho examines the Court’s view on the use of confidential documents and information obtained by ‘self-help’ means. During a relationship, it is common for couples to allow each other to access their confidential documents and information. With modern day technology, these documents are readily accessible if they are stored in the virtual “cloud” storage. The documents are essentially “one click away” from their electronic devices. It also follows that it is easy for a party to access the other party’s communications with third parties, including their legal advisers.
