What’s On Your Wall? — Social Media & Divorce

Woman on iPadThink twice before you posting your exploits on your Facebook page.  Texas divorce courts now allow evidence from facebook and other social media into evidence if certain requirements are met.

Previously, courts in divorce and child custody cases struggled to find social media postings were “authentic.”  Texas divorce courts are now willing to review the totality of the circumstances to determine whether the facts are sufficient to find the facebook postings were authored by the offending party.

If your facebook page contains photos, quotes, and other relevant details about your activities, chances are your facebook postings will be admitted into evidence.  So, think twice before posting that photo of you and your paramour out on the town!
