Divorce is just not what it used to be
Financial Times (Germany), March 26, 2008

Divorce. Not a fun topic, but we’ve mentioned it before and think the increased role electronic evidence is playing along side it is interesting to reiterate. According to a study by the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, 88 percent of US divorce attorneys say spouses commonly challenge their partner with electronic evidence.

“Many people still don’t realize how much evidence can be gleaned from personal electronics ranging from computers to cell phones to GPS devices,” said James Hennenhoefer, the divorce academy’s president.

The article points out that technology cannot only catch a cheating spouse, but it can also track monetary movement. Most of the press we’ve seen focuses on the preservation of electronic evidence in corporate suits, so we think this article hits on an important reminder – electronic evidence is used in a variety of environments. In all instances, the need to authenticate that evidence to ensure it can be admitted into evidence is essential.
