Did You Find Evidence of Bad Conduct?
If you have incriminating evidence showing your spouse in a bad light, the first thing you should do is preserve the evidence. Be sure to save a copy of everything to share with your attorney.
- Facebook, MySpace or Twitter: Posts and photos can disappear from social networking websites. In order to preserve the information, take a screen shot of your computer screen and save copies of any photos.
- Text messages and voicemails: Some cell phone companies delete voicemails and text messages after a certain period of time. E-mail the text, photo or voicemail to yourself or save it to your computer to make sure it doesn't vanish.
If you are uncertain about using Facebook, MySpace or Twitter, we are tech savvy and will search the social networking sites for you. If necessary, we can even hire a private investigator to help find the facts.
Using the Evidence as Grounds for Divorce in Georgia
In Georgia, bad conduct by either party in a divorce case is relevant. Evidence can be used to establish grounds for divorce, allowing you to go forward with a divorce if the other party doesn't want to.
Bad conduct can also influence court judgment on your child custody and visitation, alimony, property division and other issues. For example, adultery is an automatic bar to alimony. Also, evidence of child abuse can result in modifications to child custody agreements.
Our attorneys are experienced in using the information gathered from social networking sites and cell phones to help clients establish grounds for divorce. We have used text messages and posts from Facebook to help our clients:
- Also, evidence of child abuse will result in a change of custody
- Obtain favorable property division where the ex-spouse had an affair before or during the divorce
- Modify client's child support, custody or alimony
- Avoid paying alimony where their spouse cheated on them
