Practicing Family Law in the Age of Facebook® & Computer Spying: MCLE Family Law Briefing
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
MCLE webcasts are delivered completely online, underscoring their convenience and appeal. There are no published print materials. All written materials are available electonically only. They are posted 24 hours prior to the program and can be accessed, downloaded, or printed from your computer.
