I was heavily under the influence of alcohol

Customer Question

I was heavily under the influence of alcohol and told someone misinformation in messages, can that conversation be heard in a family court even though it's absolute rubbish, can I be called as a witness etc? Like I say I was upset at what this person was doing to my friend and told her lies to wind her up while not in a right state of mind due to alcohol. P.s my friends wife won't let him see kids, first stages of divorce etc

What makes you think you would have to give evidence?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I don't know really, was thinking she might use the lies I told her, am I barking down the wrong tree? Don't know how it works!
Expert:  Clare replied 2 years ago.
Please try not to worry
Whatever she threatens she cannot rely on text messages as evidence of anything - the existence of drunken late night text messages is a well known phenomenon!
Whilst you may not have helped your friend's case you have not done it any harm!
