Divorce and the Use of Social Media

Some people turn to social media for emotional support when they are going through a divorce, hoping that friends and family members will be able to comfort them during this difficult time. While these social platforms can be a lifeline for someone who is struggling with the end of their marriage, there are also some different reasons why it is important to be careful when it comes to sharing certain types of information online, especially during a divorce.

Sometimes, the type of information you share on the internet could have an impact on a family law case you are working through. For example, if you share some types of sensitive information about yourself, this could be used against you during a dispute over child custody. Moreover, you may notice that your child’s other parent is sharing inappropriate and concerning information online, and you may want to bring this to the attention of the courtroom.

It is very important to watch out for your child’s best interests and to make your divorce as straightforward and positive as you possibly can. By avoiding sharing any sensitive information online and watching out for any such posts from your former spouse, you may be able to work through your divorce without unnecessary complications.

We understand how emotionally charged some people can become as a result of family law issues, whether they feel angry or depressed. However, it is important to maintain your composure and do what you can to successfully resolve any family law hurdles that arise.
