FaceBook can be used for comparing yourself to others and investigating persons you just met. It can also be used to brag on yourself, your child’s latest, cutest thing and driving up “hits” on your blog. However, it is NOT to air your DIVORCE DRAMA!
“81 percent of divorce attorneys surveyed by the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers said they’d seen an increase in the number of cases using social networking evidence in the five years prior. The attorneys said Facebook was the number one source for finding online evidence, with 66 percent admitting they’d found evidence by combing the site.”
What are some of the things NOT to post on FaceBook?
- Don’t put the sordid details of your case.
- Don’t take cheap shots at the other’s parenting ability.
- Don’t post inappropriate pictures of yourself or others.
- Don’t call out the Judge or Court system on your page.
- Don’t put out false information to garner sympathy.
