Digital behavior can translate into real-world divorce issues

From both demographic and family law standpoints, Texas is a huge, diverse state with all types of divorce cases. One specific type of marital dissolution is the high asset divorce, not uncommon in a state where fortunes can rise and fall rapidly. In today's age of technology and social media, though, the effects of the parties' behavior on a high asset divorce can strongly impact a Texan's career.

In San Antonio, one of the top officials at the Alamo has recently become entangled in a divorce case that may derail further career goals with the historical landmark. The Alamo's Executive Administrator, who has already filed for divorce from her husband, has admitted that she sent explicit images of herself to another male. Moreover, she acknowledged sending such pictures from a cellphone that was for both personal and business use.

The woman's husband has accused her of cheating with a former Alamo vendor; the woman has countered by denying infidelity and saying her husband is trying to blow things out of proportion with the media. Her spouse has sought both an examination of a laptop computer related to the case, as well as testimony from the man believed to have received the incriminating pictures and texts. The man apparently first glimpsed the images last September, and his wife claims he sent them to some of her Alamo co-workers and other contacts.

With their case set for a court hearing later this month, it remains to be seen what the ultimate outcome will be. In a high asset divorce, illicit communications, especially ones that are potentially embarrassing, can damage a person's public image. However, sometimes these items can demonstrate the reasons for a divorce or the background behind the decision to part ways. Divorcing spouses with high-profile careers should always work closely with a trusted attorney to determine crucial next steps relating to these types of communications.
