Part 2: How to prepare for divorce

Prepare for Divorce.jpgIn our last post we focused on the fact that with it almost being springtime, more couples will file for divorce. For many, it is the sense of starting anew and finally doing what they know in their hearts is the right thing. And while we mentioned the importance of talking to an attorney in the planning stages and saving up money for the interim, it is also important to take control of finances and back away from social media during the divorce process.

Increase in online dating profile evidence seen in divorce court

15175592_s.jpgWhen it comes to obtaining evidence to use against an ex, many angry wives and husbands will go to great lengths to prove the other is a bad parent, or is attempting to hide information. In some cases, these angry soon-to-be ex-spouses will even use information -- inaccurate information -- from an online dating profile in court.

Include social media rules in your Missouri parenting plan

Thumbnail image for social-media.jpgIn the past we have posted about the increasing role social media is playing in divorces. However, outside of things like Facebook being used to try and paint one parent in a negative light or prove infidelity, parents who are going through a divorce are increasingly being encouraged to establish rules regarding how images of the children can be used on social media sites. These rules should be included in the child custody agreement.

Technology can be positive and negative in divorce

A University of Missouri study recently examined the role technology is playing in separation and divorce -- especially in cases where the couple have children together. From there it was found that while technology can be a tool used for better communication and parenting, it can also be used maliciously by parents.

Why is Facebook being seen in more divorce cases?

Recently the CEO of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, tied the knot and married his longtime girlfriend. However, while his status just changed to "married," it turns out that many couples who later go on to change their status to "divorcde" or "single," cite Facebook as playing a role in why their marriage did not go as planned.

Smartphone data ending up as evidence in family law court

In today's world more and more people are using smartphones -- such as iPhones and Androids -- on a daily basis to send text messages, make phone calls, look up online information, use a GPS and check different social media sites. And while having this handy device right in your back pocket certainly adds a level of convenience to life, many are seeing their smartphone being used as evidence in a divorce proceeding.

New twist to social media in divorce proceedings

In the past we've discussed the role of Facebook in divorce. In fact, even the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers reported seeing an increase in the use of evidence gathered from social media sites being used in divorce proceedings. However, a recent judge's ruling has the potential to play a rather large role in future rulings in Missouri and throughout the country when it comes to social media sites and divorce.
