How social media can influence divorce cases

If an individual going through a divorce reveals information about a new job or a big bonus via email or text message, the information can be used as evidence that the individual was not entirely truthful about financial assets. Information that has not been divulged prior to the discovery of the electronic message, such as an email or text message, can be admitted in court and can be subpoenaed.

Posting on social media networks such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, can be detrimental to a lying husband or wife. If one posts about a new job or expensive vacation while filing for alimony in court, the post can be discovered by the opposing attorneys and lead to a denied request.
