Evidence from cell phones being used in divorce tr…  

Recent research reveals that 90 percent of divorce lawyers agree that the use of evidence from cell phones is increasing and becoming more important in divorce cases . This type of evidence can come in the form of text messages, call history, photos, videos, emails, and more.Text and photo evidence from cell phones can often display the true state of relationships, making them more credible to a court.  In addition, little evidence is generally presented in divorce cases, so text messages and other mobile phone evidence are sometimes the relied on evidence in a trial.One lawyer stated, "You can document anything at any time in real time.
