That must be hard to have that happen. Have you tried family counseling?

Customer
Hi there Chris my name is ***** ***** me and my partner well x I think are pretty much splitting up she's staying with family at the moment I'm at our house we bought together with our kids she has said to me except legal action she has some texts from me to another female friend whom I kept secret from her because she is a very jealous person which is wrong I know we have a lot of assets together I don't know what steps to take so I don't get caught out or left with the short end of everything

See if counselling will work first. However if the relationship is over you will need to consider issues like dividing the property and possibly buying her out. You will need to sort a parenting agreement for the children. You may need a lawyer to help negotiate the legal parts.

Customer
Ok do I need to lodge a police report she took control of my Google account and all apps attached so I couldn't do anything until last night I figured out her password ***** regained access to my account and found a deleted email were she used my email to say I sold my car to her and changed the ownership into her name

I think  a discussion is needed before you go to the police. They may not be interested in the complaint, as it is about relationship property, although she should not have hacked your account
