The Impact of Facebook & Other Social Media Sites on Divorce
Our world is connected like never before, and through social media we publicize much of our personalize lives for the rest of the world to see. In Ohio and much of America it is difficult to find anyone who does not have a Facebook account, and millions of people check Twitter daily for updates on their friends and favorite celebrities. There are dangers to social media, however, especially if you are contemplating a divorce or are currently going through the divorce process.
Pictures, comments and messages are increasingly being used as evidence in divorce proceedings. The New York Times reports that 81 percent of attorneys in the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers have used information they have found on social networks.

Social Media and Divorce: Causes of Divorce
Our firm understands that social media is often not a direct cause of a couple wanting to end their marriage, but it can play a large role in your alimony, child custody, visitation and final divorce order.
For example, pictures posted online of drinking or other undesirable behavior can be used as evidence in child custody disputes, bringing into question a parent’s fitness. In addition, the ease of connecting to other people online has made infidelity and its temptations much easier. Messages and other online evidence like this are consistently being used by family law attorneys on their clients’ behalves.
When you come to our firm, we will discuss proper online behavior and investigate whether any evidence exists that we can use to further your goals in your contested or uncontested divorce. We emphasize protecting our clients’ rights and providing exceptional service. We are always available to address any concerns or questions you might have.
