Mrs. LL Would Be Very Bored With Mine



(Forbes) – Most divorces require spouses to part with some of their property, but in Connecticut, a soon-to-be ex-husband and wife are being asked to give up more than just investments, cars, TVs, kids, and pets. They have to hand over their social networking passwords. At the end of September, Judge Kenneth Shluger ordered that the attorneys for Stephen and Courtney Gallion exchange “their client’s Facebook and dating website passwords.” Everyone knows that evidence from social networking sites comes in handy for lawsuits and divorces. Attorneys usually get that material by visiting someone’s page or asking that they turn over evidence from their page, not by signing into their accounts. But judges are sometimes forcing litigants to hand over the passwords to their Facebook accounts.

Ask me for my password in advance of when you are going to login, bet you would get a facebook, email account stripped to the bone.

Seriously: Its like calling someone when they issue a search warrant.

I'd avoid marriage. If not, I'd avoid infidelity. In Texas its a 50 50 splait regardless of who is the skunk.

Those 50-50 splaits really hurt too. Almost as much as a split.

Ahhh . . . Facebook. Every divorce lawyer's best friend. Back in the day when I first made "logging in" part of the initial client interview, it was myspace. We guessed the log in for my client's soon to be ex. He was a commercial pilot with a girl in every port. My client threw up in the trash can but the unknowing was over and she got a great settlement.


I tell my clients that it is too late to remove much. Everything is cached somewhere -- it is just a matter of finding it.

My initial interview also includes the potential client handing me their phone. Most clients try to delete their texts and ims but they don't have their phones cleaned. Once the phones are turned over and checked, then you really know what is going on.

I doubt she'd be bored if she had your Google chat password. She's seen some of those conversations in the past, hasn't she?

I can't imagine how she's not bored with you anyway. You're pretty much the classical definition of "stick in the mud".

'Cept for that whole meal ticket thing. Women aren't stupid. Just evil.
