Unwinding digital connections with an ex following divorce

| May 22, 2018 | Family Law, Firm News

Most Arkansas residents going through the divorce process reasonably know that they need to proactively and methodically act to sever a host of current connections they share with their soon-to-be ex.

Take savings and investment accounts, for example. It makes sense that those vehicles be thoroughly examined and appropriately updated. To wit: You certainly don’t want the account you diligently add to through your on-the-job toil to be jointly held by a former spouse.

Lots of things likely need to be attended to, such as changed insurance beneficiaries, will specifics, adjusted deeds and titles, tax forms/documents and more. Some parties might want the house locks changed and shared online social accounts terminated.

That might be enough to instill confidence and a sense of security going forward into post-divorce life for most people.

But not all.

One national publication recently noted in a topical article strongly relevant to family law matters an array of heightened concerns facing some ex-spouses and domestic partners. Specifically, those owe to a host of relatively new and powerful ways that estranged individuals have “to maintain access to and control over their victims’ lives.”

As the online magazine Slate stresses, it’s a brave new world regarding ready access to things like camera-linked doorbells that enable persons logged into a special app to view a home’s front entranceway activity remotely. Individuals with a vendetta or lingering anger-management issues can surveil former partners via tiny hidden GPS tracking devices, phone-tracking apps and many other spy-abetting devices that are widely available.

Indeed, most divorces in Arkansas and elsewhere don’t feature high-tech warfare aimed at perpetual privacy intrusions.

Some do, though, with modern-day stalkers having a huge assortment of enabling gadgets and devices that promote their unethical and sometimes illegal tracking of ex-partners.

Persons with questions or concerns regarding the above subject matter can contact a proven family law attorney for advice and, when necessary, legal representation. An experienced divorce attorney is well acquainted with the above-cited brave new world.
