TOOL OF THE DAY: Storing and Sharing Your Evidence
CATEGORY: Family Law
Organization can be a problem when you are going through divorce, especially when there are property issues and child custody disputes.
We found that the best way to store your files and share them is on a Google Drive, a private wiki, or a file sharing site like basecamp.
Google drive is free for a limited amount of storage. When you need more storage there is a minimal fee of $1.99 for the first addition. Then after that there are higher fees.
There are many free wiki sites out there, but the storage may be limited when it is free, so make sure that you build your storage for your litigation purposes on a site where you can upgrade. Make sure that you can afford that site’s upgrade cost.
My favorite is Basecamp by far! If you have a little money to invest, for as little as $20 a month you can have a basecamp where you can store, share, and have discussions all in one place. It is well worth the investment. And right now, you can try and use basecamp for free for two months! You can find more information about basecamp here: https://basecamp.com/
These are all better alternatives than e-mailing all of your evidence. E-mailing can be extremely time consuming, difficult to keep track of, require that the person you send it do save it somewhere on their computer, and if you change attorneys you have to e-mail it all over again to your new one!
With any of the options above all you have to do is remove the old user and add your new ones. Check them all out. And let us know what you think.
