Tempted to lie in an online dating profile? Better think first about what it could cost you in a divorce, suggests the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers.

In a Monday press release, the AAML says a survey shows the relationship status listed on Match.com profiles is a common source of adverse evidence in divorce cases.

“Identifying yourself as single when you are not, or listing that you have no children when you are actually a parent, can represent some key pieces of evidence against you during the divorce process,” says Alton Abramowitz in the release. He serves as the group’s president.
