Few technological advancements or social movements have impacted matrimonial law as profoundly as the computer/electronic age. Today, litigants have a virtual Pandora’s box of incredibly vast yet retrievable information at their fingertips, which all too often remains underutilized or undiscovered.

Currently, stored data can be retrieved from joint marital assets such as computers, cell phones or even facsimile devices with memory capabilities. The information stems from usage, whether explicitly “saved” by the computer operator or not. It can later be deciphered or interpreted by a trained professional and can yield countless bits of information to assist in discovery.
