Dating Sites Used In Divorce Fights

129656-dating-websiteHERALD SUN - Dec 2 - Warring couples are increasingly using dating site as evidence to prove the time-line of a relationship. This could affect the division of assets. In some cases, people who argued they had been still in the relationship and entitled to assets were revealed to have been listed as single on a dating site. An international research shows that in the US social networks such as Facebook are increasingly involved in divorces. The American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers found most divorce lawyers saw more cases using social media for evidence of cheating. As Australia has a no-fault divorce system, people did not need to prove reasons such as cheating. But the separation date with de facto or same sex couples can, in certain cases, end up being critical to which court - state or federal - divides the assets.
