Social media can help or hinder your divorce

The popularity of using social media to connect with family, friends and business associates continues to grow. While posting both the good and difficult events of life online is intended to share life with a person's social circle, during legal proceedings, attorneys are also able to review postings while searching for information that might help support their cases. With increasing frequency, electronic communications are playing a role in legal proceedings.

By reviewing online activity, social media has become an easy way to for legal professionals to learn about a person's day-to-day life. Seemingly innocent pictures of a person on a vacation with friends may suggest that a parent has free time to spend with children but is choosing not to be a responsible parent. Photos of new purchases may be used to demonstrate that a person's claims of financial difficulty may not be true.

Historically, information about a person's private life were difficult to obtain and had to be found via extensive research and investigation. With the extensive use of electronic media by most people, emails, cell phone records, computer data and social media all may provide additional detail quickly and easily. Most people believe that deleted content cannot be retrieved, but forensic specialists are developing new and better ways of obtaining old and hidden information.

Divorce is a difficult time in the life of all people involved. In circumstances that financial concerns, social media postings and electronic communications might help attorneys put together various details to help their clients. That attorney may be able to use evidence found online support a client's assertions in court during divorce proceedings.
