Social Media and Family Law – Evidence and Risks

Social media can contain a significant amount of evidence relevant to family law litigation and pre-settlement negotiations. Practitioners need to understand how to find it, how to use it, the essential advice to give to clients and how to minimise the impact when adverse information may be used against your client.

This seminar will address:

  • Common and ‘uncommon’ social media sites to check for evidence;
  • What evidence on social media sites is admissible?;
  • How to strategically use social media to benefit your client’s matter without increasing risk;
  • The critical advice to give to your client regarding social media; and
  • How to mitigate the damage once information has been posted by your client on social media.

An essential seminar for all family law practitioners.

Presented by: Annelis Bos, Partner, Coote Family Lawyers

Exposing Hidden Assets and Financial Misinformation 

It is not uncommon for a party in family law proceedings to provide their own version of their financial position.  It can be difficult to sort out the facts from the fiction, particularly in the absence of forensic accounting.

This session will address the warning signs, questions to ask and investigations to undertake in order to expose a party hiding or providing misleading financial information. This session can also be helpful in knowing when to question your client about gaps in instructions around financial information.
