Social Media Becoming More Prevalent in Child Custody and Support


Social Media Web Sites Becoming More Prevalent in Child Custody and Support Cases


When spouses decide to go their separate ways and there are children who were born as a result of that relationship, the situation can become extremely nasty when issues regarding child custody and child support are contested.  When these difficult situations arise, the cases will almost always come down to the evidence that’s accepted by the court before it renders a decision.  As such, almost anything a parent says or does can become evidence that’s used by the other spouse later on in the proceedings.

One of the emerging sources for evidence regarding issues relating to child custody and child support is social networking Web sites such as Facebook and Twitter.  For instance, if someone tells a court that he or she deserves primary child custody for any reason and then it’s discovered that this parent was neglecting children while posting on social networking sites, that evidence could wind up being used and it could wind up affecting the ultimate decision on primary custody.

Therefore, child custody and child support lawyers are beginning to advice clients that they need to be aware that everything that is posted on a social networking site should be considered public information.  Many people who were delinquent in child support payments have been located because of their Facebook posts and ultimately brought to justice as a result.
