Tulsa Divorce attorneys have seen more and more information relating to their divorce, child support or child custody cases arriving in the form of electronic communications sent via a cellphone or smartphone. While it is their immediacy and the omnipresence that makes them so addictive, it is also what makes them so potentially dangerous during a divorce proceeding.
Out of San Antonio comes news that the executive administrator of the historic Alamo has been accused of “sexting,” the sending of explicit photographs of herself to a man from her cellphone. She is currently involved in a divorce and her husband has accused her of having an affair with this man.
He has requested an examination of a laptop computer and testimony from the man. This case illustrates the risks of using a computer or cellphone to send embarrassing messages or photos. With a phone especially, it is easy to snap a photo and hit “send” without fully thinking through the consequences of this action.
If you are considering a divorce, you may also want to consider avoiding cellphone texts, photos and social media in general, to avoid later problems that could compromise your case.
