We’ve already talked about Facebook in divorce. But all of technology can and is used in divorce cases. For years, I have been using evidence in the form of emails and texts to show how one party/parent is acting versus the other. I’ve used them to show when and/or how something happened, or even to show the fact that something happened (for example, he says she never told him about the birthday party during his custodial time, but I have a copy of the text message he acknowledged).
I always tell my clients, too, to watch carefully what they write to their ex in any form. Increasingly, technology and smart phones are being used in divorce cases as evidence. So, again, watch what you write, anywhere.
Have you “gotten” your ex – or been caught yourself – using technology? What happened?
