2 substantive credits, 0 ethics credits

Product Description

In divorce, knowledge equals power. Spouses have always spied on each other to gain a perceived advantage. The Internet, in particular Facebook® and other social networking sites, have increased the ability to gain knowledge in a divorce. This update discusses the use and introduction as evidence of information gained from social networking in divorce and custody litigation. This program covers a range of these topics, including:

  • Examples of the use of Facebook® evidence in litigation
  • Introduction as exhibits, and objections to the use of evidence obtained from digital sources
  • Discussions of use of evidence obtained by accessing computers, cell phones, and email accounts
  • Controlling distribution of inappropriate materials created by the parties such as through 'sexting'
  • Advising clients on the use of Facebook® during litigation
