Video surveillance of a spouse OK'd by Georgia Court of Appeals
This month, the Georgia Court of Appeals case of Rutter v. Rutter came down. The Court ruled that in –home video surveillance of a spouse is allowed, even if they were not aware of the surveillance.
The court sanctioned the trial court’s ruling that even if the purpose was to catch a spouse committing a crime, which may affect a custody case, the video is admissible in divorce court.
However, if you suspect your spouse may be committing a crime and you want to place them under surveillance, always contact an attorney to learn your responsibilities beforehand. An experienced Georgia divorce attorney like Edwards and Associates can advise you of your rights.
