Voluntary Sharing of Personal Lives Result in Secrets Being Uncovered

Posted on in Social Media
US Politics Today has revealed what many of us have known all along about one potential destination for social media: the constant status updates and sharing of information has hit the court house. Social media websites have proven invaluable when seeking information some individuals want to keep secret from ex-spouses and legal representation of exes. Family law cases have shown an increase in the number of instances where social media postings and behavior is called into question in the court arena. People are not always prudent in the things that they say, post and share on social media outlets. The usage of the info gathered from social media sites has been especially useful in family law. Among the cases aided by this wealth of information are:
  • A child support dodger from another state was located in a different state where his income was proven to be more than sufficient to pay his back child support
  • A seeker of unfair alimony payments showed herself to be untruthful about her disability claims that would have entitled her to lifetime alimony payments
  • An unfit mother lost custody of her kids after her online activity proved that she did not care for the children properly, getting them to school late while she was playing games online
