Johns Creek Divorce: "She's Taking It Out of Context"

Posted by William H. Sherman on Oct 05, 2014 | 0 Comments

Question: Things are getting bad with my wife.  There are a lot of arguments.  I have to sleep in the basement.  She doesn't usually allow me to go to the rest of the house.  She thinks I'm still cheating on her.  But I stopped that 5 years ago.

She wants a divorce and she said she can prove I'm cheating and an Internet porn addict.  She found some of my searches on the Internet.  She saw that I was searching for MILF.  MILF has a sexual meaning for most people who search for it.  She thinks that I was looking for ladies online.  But I wasn't.

Since I do a lot of travelling overseas for my job and I go to the Philippines twice a year I was searching for stories on the MILF.  The MILF is actually the Moro Islamic Liberation Front, which is a terrorist group in the Philippines.

She's taken my Internet searches out of context and she's punishing me.  I'm worried that a divorce court will think I'm searching for MILF's on the Internet.  But I was really just looking up information about the terrorists.  What will happen in divorce court, if we split up?  We live in Johns Creek.

Answer: When dealing with evidentiary issues in legal matters, context is very important.  If she tries to say that you were searching online for sexual favors or because of an Internet porn addiction, your divorce attorney needs to prove that you were, in fact, travelling to the Philippines on business and that you were merely trying to glean information about an insurgent group with the acronym of M.I.L.F.  That can be done by presenting your airline tickets to the Philippines, your work schedule and, of course, forensically determining which websites you visited.

The Moro Islamic Liberation Front has been fighting the government of the Philippines for decades seeking greater autonomy for the islands that it controls in the southern Philippines.  The MILF has been labeled a terrorist organization.  If you were travelling to the Philippines, it is quite understandable that you would be searching for information about a potentially serious and well-publicized threat to your safety.
