Facebook May Be Used Against You in an Arizona Divorce

Posted on May 27, 2011
Facebook, among other social media outlets, may be being used in Arizona divorces. Many divorce attorneys claim that social media outlets are being used to capture incriminating evidence and being used in divorce cases. Some have even gone as far as to equate Facebook as a marriage killer.

Many divorce attorneys have produced pictures found on Facebook linking their ex-spouses-to-be to compromising conduct. Such pictures have caught husbands dancing with babysitters while others are seen serving alcohol to minors. A high percentage of divorce cases are believed to include some form of Facebook involvement.

Divorce attorneys cite that incriminating pictures can be printed by spouses and divorce attorneys and attached to legal motions in a divorce case.

Recently, the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (AAML) cited a survey linking Facebook to approximately 20 percent of those divorces studied. Of those AAML members, 66 percent claim the Facebook produced evidence of marital discord and misconduct.

However, many have been quick to point out that Facebook is not to blame for a divorce and does not cause people to cheat on their spouses. Rather, Facebook and other social media outlets are just tools to collect evidence against unfaithful spouses.

Though, technology is designed to benefit and enhance your life, it can also be used as a tool against you in the event you face an Arizona divorce.
