In a new survey of divorce lawyers, 81 percent say they have seen an increase in the use of social networking evidence during the past five years. The survey, conducted by the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, pinpoints Facebook as the “unrivaled leader for online divorce evidence” with 66 percent citing it as a primary source, according to a news release about the survey.
Many divorce lawyers already tell clients to terminate social networking pages immediately. While Facebook has proven to be the evidence leader, the survey notes that 15 percent of lawyers say they’ve found evidence on MySpace and five percent from Twitter.
