Social media and divorce proceedings
Family court hearings are starting to turn to social media information more often during proceedings. When children are involved in a divorce case it is imperative for the judge to determine the best living situation for them.
Facebook is the most popular social media site that is referenced in these types of proceedings. Posts as well as pictures can be used as evidence against someone in a case.
A Connecticut couple was order to swap Facebook passwords so that their lawyers could figure out if an allegation had any truth behind it. The ex-wife was accused of posting messages that stated she wasn’t capable of handling the couple’s children. If these claims proved true, then the child custody arrangements could be altered, favoring the ex-husband.
