Prevalence Of Social Networking And Its Use As Evidence

While Facebook, Myspace, Twitter and other social media provide a wonderful way for family and friends to connect, share ideas, communicate and view photos, these networks also provide written records that can be used in divorce cases.According to a 2010 American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (AAML) survey, 81 percent of the nation’s top divorce lawyers responded that they saw an increase in cases using social networking evidence. Facebook was the unparalleled source for online divorce evidence ─ 66 percent of attorneys listed it as the primary social networking source. According to Pew Internet, use of social networking sites increased anywhere from 5 percent to 12 percent (depending on the age group) between May 2010 and August 2012. Marketing statistics show that out of a population of 315 million people in the United States, over 163 million are on Facebook, which is 71 percent of the online population.

Think From A Legal Viewpoint

The president of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (AAML) commented that people contemplating divorce should shut down their web pages and quit posting. Emails and text messages are also sources of evidence to avoid in divorce cases.During divorce, your life is under scrutiny. Aside from custody, other issues involved with divorce may be subject to online evidence. Information about assets, income and other online facts are often relevant to cases. Comments made online may conflict with your testimony and diminish your credibility.
