Social media can lead to family law issues

The impact that social media now has on interpersonal relationships is nothing short of astounding. People can now keep in touch with extended family, catch up with old friends, and even track down an old high school love interest; all from the comfort of their own homes. Never before has it been easier for Florida residents to reconnect with people or to branch out and make new friends and acquaintances. That said, social media also affords a number of opportunities to create family law issues, many of which can have unwelcome consequences.

When a couple is planning to marry, love and romance are key motivators.

Prior to entering into any contact, most people take steps to fully understand what they are getting into and read the fine print and legal disclaimers.
