What is the name of your state? Maryland
A friend of mine is going through a divorce. His wife is filing for divorce on grounds of adultery. He is not contesting the divorce and similiarly is requesting for a divorce on grounds of abandonment. She has recently filed for a subpoena for all of his mobile phone records/text messages/picture mail content sent and received from his phone since January 2004. Additionally, she is also requesting a subpoena for the same type of records from the supposed "mistress". My questions are as follows: Is it at all possible or likely the court would issue such a subpoena for these records... either his or hers or both? Would they actually be able to obtain such content of text messages and picture mail from 2004 or any at all?
One of the reasons I ask is I talk/text/picture message him all the time as he is one of my best friends. If she were able to obtain these records, the content of my text messages/picture mail would be on there also. Unfortunately, his wife is good friends with my wife. I have no idea what I may or may have not said to him over the past 3 & 1/2 years. I'm afraid that she would obtain these records and show my wife what I have said to him over the years. It may not cause a divorce for me, but I'm sure some things would put me in the dog house.
Anyhow, I am rambling on. However, I was wondering if anyone has had any prior experience with an issue/case/event such as this. Thanks in advance for your help.
