I would leave the Facebook page out! But otherwise pretty good!

Yeah, I don't think the Facebook page even matters. As long as there is nothing inappropriate on it, it would be fine to include, but probably won't make a difference. But then again people here always tell each other when in doubt, just bury them with papers. She has the primary evidence, and that's what matters! :]

My lawyers included Facebook posting.


What I post here is merely my personal opinion and not a valid legal advice and should not be viewed as such.
