Watch What You Post on Social Networks While Going Through a Divorce
We recently read an article in Forbes magazine about a family law judge in Connecticut who ordered both parties in a divorce battle to turn over the passwords to their social network accounts. You can read about the case here.
So today we are asking you, our blog readers, what you think about this case and the judge’s order. As the Forbes writer points out, it’s a legally questionable order but that isn’t the issue we want to discuss. We want to know if you think it’s fair game to have complete access to your ex’s messages and comments on Facebook, eHarmony, and Match.com. Remember, your ex won’t only be talking about you on social networks, he/she will be sharing thoughts on a number of subjects including planning dates with a new romantic interest. Should all of that information be available to you and your attorney during a divorce? Is it really relevant or is this an unwarranted invasion of privacy?
