Facebook and MySpace in Domestic Cases - Word to the Wise, Be Cautious About Postings!
With the popularity of Facebook and MySpace, communicating on the internet has become the modern wave of our future. Not only are our children texting, emailing, and creating accounts with Facebook and MySpace, parents, grandparents, and the like are catching up with the trend. Facebook and MySpace are great tools for anyone to stay connected with family and friends. However, it can also serve as your worst enemy when faced with a divorce, or similar domestic action. Word to the wise, be cautious about what you post on these websites, because you never know who may have access to the information. We see lots of clients bringing in pages and pages of communications from Facebook and MySpace. More often than not, the communication has led the client to hire an attorney, and this means your communication on the internet has contributed the litigation. You may be forced to face to music and answer hard questions in a courtroom or a deposition about Facebook or MySpace communications.
Keep these helpful tools in mind, be careful who you allow to have access to your information. Friends, friends of friends, the entire public, make sure you know is has access. Facebook and MySpace have tools available to allow you and only you to decide which people have access. Remember, if you post confidential material on your page, all of those individuals who have access to your page can read your post. Even if you are posting a thought or a mood, somebody may be watching and printing! Be smart, be aware, whichever hat your are wearing.
Georgia divorce law says that marital property is any property obtained during the marriage, except for property received as a gift from someone outside the marriage or by inheritance. Each spouse is entitled to a fair share of any marital property obtained during the marriage. The court does not use a set formula when dividing the marital property. Instead, the court will divide the marital property equitably, but not necessarily equally. This occurs regardless of whose name is on the title.
