With more than 500 million active users worldwide, Facebook can be a virtual playground for the unfaithful. And if fact, it is. Many divorce attorneys have stated that the role of Facebook in divorce hearings as evidence has become increasingly common. Facebook plays an ever-incraesing role in the everyday reality of its user, so it stands to reason, then, that Facebook is playing a greater role in the everyday reality of divorce.
One out of two marriages end in divorce. Many of these divorces are caused by infidelity by one or both partners. Where does this infidelity start? In our technological age, that answer is often Facebook. For one thing, Facebook, like a high school reunion, can lead to the road of cheating. What starts as an innocent reconnection with an old flame can turn into evenings of instant messaging, exchanging pictures, and the rest is history. But if you’re cheating on your spouse, or if you believe your spouse is cheating on your, know that Facebook’s involvement in your potential divorce doesn’t end there. In more and more cases, Facebook pages and status updates are being used in the courtroom as evidence of infidelity. The American Association of Matrimonial Lawyers estimates that over 80% of its members have used Facebook evidence in court.
