Report Facebook, Social networking sites like Facebook, MySpace and Twitter are for use online communities where people across the country are able to publicly sharing information about them and communicate with others. Many people choose to share pictures and comments in their daily activities without realizing that all the information they post on social networking sites can be considered public information and used as evidence against them in court family. A recent survey of family law attorneys across the country revealed that 81% of divorce lawyers reported seeing an increase in the use of Facebook and other social networking sites as evidence in divorce cases.
In messy divorces or custody battles, lies, lies and discovery, became a priority. In fact, while family conflict, it is not uncommon for parties to dig deep for a little evidence to show the other party in a bad light. One of the greatest examples involves deadbeat dads. Time and again, a father claim to not having enough money to pay alimony, but after they witness a Facebook profile last vacation or large purchase. Now is the evidence of choice in cases of divorce to be used as any game in a fair trial of family law. More, e-mails, or e-mail from a sender may think is private, are now playing field in the trials of divorce as well.
With the advent of the use of social media profiles in divorce and other legal essays, most lawyers are now recommending the withdrawal of any public profile when they are involved in legal proceedings. But unfortunately, this may not be sufficient, and a good divorce lawyer can get a subpoena to get the old profile or deleted. More than that, deleting an e-mail will not be sufficient either, since technology experts are able to find emails either sent or received, whether deleted or not. Do mean the loss of privacy in the age of technology?
