Various online file-sharing services (known as ‘clouds’) have recently sparked a number of divorce cases due to their ability to sync with users’ mobile devices and home computers.

Apple’s own cloud software, iCloud, has allowed a number of couples to see if their partner is cheating on them due to its ability to sync between devices and store/share incriminating evidence such as photos and text messages.

A family law partner at JMW Solicitors has said that in recent months he has received a large number of cases in which these incriminating messages have been found in clouds shared between the couples.

Sam Hall said of the cloud software: “iCloud and other cloud-based portals are relatively new developments and so it is not surprising that many people are a little naive about how they work. In cases we’ve come across, behaviour which otherwise might have been kept secret has been revealed in some of the most unsettling ways imaginable.”

Cases of a partner’s extramarital activities include a man who was encouraged by friends on a night out to seek out local and single women as well as exchanging racy images over Snapchat. The man was later approached by his wife who had saved the evidence over a span of two weeks.

Another case involves a woman whose teenage son discovered messages and photos on the family iPad which had been exchanged between her and her lover. The woman’s husband is filing for divorce due to adultery.

Hall added: “This is the new reality for couples. While there will always be some people who will cheat or indulge in unreasonable behaviour, they should be aware that the chances of being caught out have never been higher.”
