Divorce Lawyers Missing Out When It Comes to Facebook Evidence?

by Annette Burns on November 12, 2009

I hope this isn't true, but I'm sure alot of divorce attorneys aren't necessarily finding what they could be finding by using Facebook evidence.  Take a look at the attached article  Divorce lawyers missing out on Facebook evidence?   from LawyersUSA Online.    I like the suggestion of having one's own legal assistants go online and find out what incriminating information is on the Web anywhere (including social networking sites) about our clients.

I completely disagree with the North Carolina lawyer who states, in this article, "most cases where there is evidence of adultery quickly settle."  Well, maybe in North Carolina, but I wouldn't say that's true here in Arizona.

I am going to have to look into preparing written guidelines for my own clients to review their own online presence, including Facebook and Twitter profiles and publishing.
