Using Social Media During Your Los Angeles Divorce

Posted By Edwin Castellanos || 16-Aug-2013

In a study published by the University of Birmingham, we learned this week that information sharing on Facebook could end some relationships. The use of Facebook, Twitter, and other social media has clearly changed the way we communicate with each other. I just spent this morning posting the latest happenings on the Baby Veronica Custody Case on Facebook and Twitter. Social media has not only changed our personal lives but it has also changed the way we innovate and provide information to customers such as providing updates and relevant news to clients at our family law practice in Los Angeles.

The world saw how the use of social media such as Facebook and Twitter can create tremendous social movements that inspire change such as the events that led to the ouster of President Morsi in Egypt. Social media has not only changed the way the world communicates with each other, but the use of technology has forever impacted inter-personal and family relationships. This is no more true than the impact the use of social media has on marital relationships – especially during divorce.

As a Los Angeles divorce lawyer, I can tell you that there has been an increase in the use of social media as a source for obtaining evidence against an opposing spouse or party during divorce proceedings. As a result, I would rather not have clients using Facebook, Twitter and other social media during their family law case to avoid embarrassing moments caught on Facebook being used against against a client. However, this is not a perfect world and we all know that some divorce proceedings can get pretty messy.

Family Lawyer Magazine has published a terrific article on the use of Social Media during divorce proceedings entitled “Social Media In Divorce Proceedings,” written by Judge Michele Lowrance and Pamela J. Hutul. We think you will enjoy the article and let us know what you think!
