Domestic violence is unfortunately a reality for a large number of people. Most people don’t realize how much the technologies we use every day can exacerbate domestic abuse problems, but my clients live it every day.

On May 27, 2015 the Huffington Post published a piece by San Diego Assembly Speaker Toni G. Atkins about a new bill proposal that would empower family courts to compel wireless telephone service providers to transfer account rights to anyone wishing to escape situations involving domestic violence. “It would also transfer any phone numbers, contacts, and applications that belong to the wireless number,” says Atkins.

“Domestic violence is unfortunately a reality for a large number of people. Most people don’t realize how much the technologies we use every day can exacerbate domestic abuse problems, but my clients live it every day,” says Bruce Feinstein. “There are cases where jealous (and sometimes abusive) spouses track their partners with GPS, often times without their knowledge. This is especially problematic in stalking situations and when orders of protection are in effect.”

Queens Family and Divorce Law Attorney Bruce Feinstein, Esq. also warns of issues that arise when an abusive spouse will threaten to or actually will interrupt service just to torment the other party.

“I think the bill proposed by Toni G. Atkins is a great one. I also believe everyone should seriously consider the effects their phones and digital information can effect them, their loved ones, and their relationships.”
