Finding Fault On-line in a No-Fault State

Iowa is a "no fault" state.  Generally, this means that the conduct of either party leading up to the divorce cannot be used as a factor in awarding a property settlement or alimony.  The conduct of a party is; however, still relevant when it comes to issues such as child custody and visitation.  With social networking on the rise, your on-line conduct is something that will likely be closely scrutinized by your soon-to-be ex-spouse.  According to factslides.com, a third of all U.S. divorce filings in 2011 contained the word "facebook."  If you are contemplating filing for divorce or if you are currently involved in litigation, it is a good idea to review your facebook page (or any other social networking sites) and remove any posts or photographs that could be negatively used as evidence against you.
