Electronic Evidence for Family Law Attorneys

by Timothy Conlon (Author), Aaron Hughes (Author)

Issues of access to and the forensic use of electronic evidence are central to our social agenda—and nowhere are those issues more complicated than in family law. Who but a spouse knows your passwords and may share legal title to the accounts that control your family’s information?

Electronic Evidence for Family Law Attorneys explains the complexities of evidence as well as how to effectively integrate this knowledge into your family law practice. It presents critical information in clear terms to help you speak about these issues with clients, with expert witnesses who command vast knowledge in the field, and with judges who may have little familiarity with current electronic communication platforms. Topics include:
How to discuss electronic evidence with your clients, from protecting passwords to reviewing social media habits
Preservation of electronic evidence
Legal versus illegal tactics, including spyware, copying software, keyloggers, video and audio recording, and GPS tracking
How to select and use experts
How to obtain access to electronic evidence held by others, and more
