After a long and very difficult divorce, I bought my ex-wife’s shares of our company one month ago.
I knew she was willing to open her own business in the exact same field we were working together, but I just discovered today that she uses pictures of previous clients from my company to grow her notoriety, because she feels as she did the job when she was co-owner, the pictures also belong to her.
We are in very bad terms now and have no contact anymore. What would be my best option regarding that problem ?
She is also staying in the US illegaly : she lost her visa whzn we divorced as I was the primary holder, works pretending she has a company in Las Vegas but didn’t actually open any company, any professional account, has no licence and no insurance. She also gave a false address to her (and my) attorney so I don’t know where she lives now and where to send a mail if I have to.
Thanks for your advice.
