A recent survey revealed that in 2011 one third of divorce petitions included the word Facebook. The most common reasons for it to be cited in the grounds for divorce were inappropriate messages to others, unpleasant posts about each other and reports of unwise behaviour.
The review of 5000 petitions for divorce also included mention of Twitter in 20 of those.
Nothing new in the behaviour but facebook, twitter and other social media can provide evidence for suspicious spouses and their divorce solicitors.
They can also be a rich source of information about someone's financial circumstances - very useful for your divorce solicitor when negotiating a financial divorce settlement.
Our divorce advice - avoid using social media during the divorce process.
