How can social media interfere with your divorce?

May 27, 2022 | Family Law

Even under ideal circumstances, a divorce has the potential to take a significant toll on the emotional well-being of everyone in your family. In fact, according to Psychology Today, the grief a person feels during and after divorce often compares to the sadness that comes from the death of a loved one.

To help you cope with your complicated emotions, it may be tempting to post on social media. Before you open an app on your smartphone or turn on your laptop, though, you should be mindful of how your social media usage may interfere with your divorce.

Alienating your soon-to-be ex-spouse

Most social media platforms allow users to lock down privacy settings. Even if your settings seem to keep your posts private, you cannot guarantee your soon-to-be ex-spouse will not learn about what you say online. Put simply, if your posts alienate your husband or wife, he or she may be less willing to negotiate.

Jeopardizing your child custody goals

You and your spouse already may have come up with an acceptable child custody arrangement. If so, a judge is likely to defer to it. Nevertheless, it is possible for your social media posts to jeopardize your child custody goals. Indeed, if your posts make you appear to be an unfit or reckless parent, you even may be at risk of losing custody altogether.

Even though some divorce attorneys advise their clients to stay off social media until divorce proceedings conclude, you may not have to disconnect completely. Ultimately, though, by exercising discretion every time you post to your social media accounts, you can keep your online activity from interfering with your divorce.
