How Does Social Media Effect Your Divorce? 
Before the days of cell phones, text messages, e-mails and all kinds of social media, most disputes between spouses and evidence were “he said/she said” arguments.  If we were lucky we had photos, documents, a recording or a witness to prove what occurred.  Now, there is proof in black and white as to what our clients said to each other, what they told their friends, who they attempted to date during the marriage or divorce and where they went. 

Without even getting a court ordered cell phone or computer download by a forensic computer expert, we have cases with thousands of pages of messages just in the known messages between our clients. 

It is not hard to lay a sufficient predicate to get all types of digital and social media into evidence in court. 

If you have things on your social media that you are not proud of, DO NOT erase them. That is called spoilation of evidence. Instead, don’t make any more bad posts or better yet don’t make any posts at all, and take your entire social media private. 

The big rule, if you do not want a text, recording or social media post of any kind read back to you in the courtroom, don’t say it. 

If you would like to discuss strategies on how to manage your social media during your divorce proceeding or any other family law issues you may have, please contact our office, at 214-303-0142 or our temporary number 972-452-3968, e-mail or visit our website to schedule an appointment.

We are meeting with clients by video or in person using CDC guidelines.
