A recent survey of divorce lawyers in America has found that people's reliance on their smart phone to organise most aspects of their life has led to the phones becoming a source of evidence to be used in the divorce court.

Around 92% of lawyers questioned said they have seen an increase in the number of cases using evidence taken from iPhones, Droids, and other smart phones during the past three years.

The survey of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (AAML) also found that 94% of respondents have cited an overall rise in the use of text messages as evidence during the same time period. Only 8% of lawyers said they had seen no change in the use of evidence taken from smart phones during the past three years.

As far as the most common forms of evidence taken from smart phones, text messages hold the top spot at 62%, e-mails follow at 23%, phone numbers and call histories at 13%, with GPS and Internet search histories each sharing 1%.
