A picture is worth a thousand words, or so they say.  This is especially true when the picture is published on the internet via Facebook.  A Ohio woman discovers not only that her Husband is having an extra-marital affair, but goes onto his girlfriend’s Facebook page and flips through a photo-album of her husband marrying the other woman.  A California woman finds her two children who were taken by their father some fifteen years earlier.  The first time the woman saw her daughter’s face in fifteen years was on a public computer in a California library.

The internet, and its’ various creations, including Facebook and Twitter, are both a blessing and a curse.  It can be an invaluable tool to family law attorneys who are trying to find out information, including the whereabouts of a spouse who is hiding from service of the complaint or a parent who is avoiding their child support obligations.  On the other hand it can lead to some awkward conversations if your client is discovered having an affair based on something they posted on the internet.  Please contact one of our family law attorneys at (908) 879-9499 about any legal questions you may have.
