Unfortunately more information is needed to help answer your question. Do you go through a legal separation proceeding through the court (called a Divorce from Bed and Board in RI) or did you simply separate, make your own agreement and now reside at separate addresses?

If you did the latter, did you have an agreement as to who would be the owner of the computer? Has he given you permission to use the computer at the residence he lives at?

HOW have you been "watching" what he does online? Did you buy special software to track him or retain that information and then install it? Or are you just looking at his internet browser's history or the "cookies" in his "cookies folder on the computer?

I need the answers to all these questions to reasonably try to assist you.
