New Jersey Divorce Attorneys: Explaining Divorce & Social Media
Facebook, Twitter and smartphones can be effective means of communication. But they can be a gold mine for a divorce lawyer.
A recent survey by the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers showed that 66 percent of divorce lawyers examine the Facebook pages of their clients’ spouses, looking for damaging material. If you are thinking about getting a divorce, you should exercise discretion in any social media matter.
You should also be very careful when texting friends or colleagues, sending them photos or sending emails.
