If you are undergoing a divorce or dissolution, or are involved in a paternity, child custody dispute, social media can have a significant impact on the outcome of your case. You need an attorney who understands how Ohio courts view social media — someone who fights to protect your rights.
At Andrew Russ Law, LLC, in Columbus, Ohio, I deal with technological issues in almost every legal dispute I handle, so I know how courts view technological evidence and how it should be used to achieve the best possible results.
Something that was posted on Facebook or Twitter may be at issue, or emails, IMs and texts may contain important evidence that the parties wish to introduce into court. If you have concerns about electronic evidence, I urge you to talk with me about the right strategy to use.
I often remind clients that anything posted on the Internet is there permanently. Even if you delete a Facebook post or hide the content, there are still ways that professionals can retrieve it. The best course of action is to treat everything you post like it might go before a judge. Before you upload or share it, think would I want the judge to know this?
The same rules apply to your spouse as well. In Ohio, adultery is grounds for divorce. I often handle military divorces and civilian divorces in which a cheating spouse is an issue. Many of the clients I represent can point to pictures posted on social media sites to prove that the offensive conduct occurred.
