IT MAY ALREADY BE TOO LATE TO DELETE THOSE EMBARASSING DRUNKEN SELFIES ON FACEBOOK
The prohibitions available in a temporary restraining order upon the filing of a divorce proceeding, if filed after September 1, 2015, have been expanded; although many of these prohibitions are already written into our various standing orders (for example, the Denton County Standing Order Regarding Children, Property, and Conduct of the Parties), even those may be tweaked of some specifics in this new legislation.
For example, harassment or threats via video chat or text messaging may now be expressly prohibited. Any property interest in electronically stored unrecorded information is now to be protected. Also a no-no is destroying or altering electronic communications such as emails, chat, video, texts, etc. (even your own) however stored, messing with the metadata, deleting or taking down your (their/the kid’s) Facebook page or other social media account/profile, hacking into the other side’s accounts (communications, social, financial, etc. etc.).
