Facebook and Divorce

Posted in Uncategorized on August 27, 2009 by Midsouthdivorce

I recently came across this facebook video and I laughed out loud.

You would be shocked at just how much dirt you can gather on a person going thru a divorce on facebook.  In our office we have our clients sign a contract that states they agree to close their account during the divorce.

If you or someone you know is going through a similar process, it might be wise to suspend your social networking for the time being.  Those bunny ears at Halloween may have been harmless, but they can be used to paint a fairly nasty picture in Court.

Also, just because your account is made private, dont think that your information is personal.  By its very nature a social network makes information available for all to see.  This means that there is no right to privacy.  So when you post about how drunk you were at the concert last week, dont be suprised if you hear mention of it again in the Courtroom.

So be social, but do so at your own risk.
