We have previously discussed how social media sites like Facebook have changed how divorce happens in Utah. These days, it is not uncommon for someone going through divorce to keep tabs on his or her spouse's online activity for evidence that he or she is hiding assets or is an unfit parent. Courts take online pictures and videos seriously and their content may affect the divorce decree.
When parents in Utah get a divorce, child custody issues frequently are a major issue for them to settle or, if necessary, the court to decide. Most parents and their attorneys are aware of what needs to be nailed down, such as how to divide parenting time and visitation. But there can be more subtle questions that no one conceives of when negotiating a settlement but become major sources of conflict in the months or years to come.
