Stay off of social media while going through a divorce

| Mar 26, 2019 | divorce |

If you are preparing to go through a divorce in Louisville, you need to be especially careful when it comes to your social media use. Social media can be the downfall of your divorce case if you continue to post on it during your court proceedings. It might not seem like much, but a simple post of a picture or opinion on one of your social media pages can land you in a lot of hot water with your soon-to-be ex-spouse.

Social media is not the place to hash out the problems you are having with your spouse. It’s also not the place to discuss the details of your marriage or impending divorce. Doing either of these things will look bad in the eyes of the court as your posts can be used against you by your spouse’s lawyer.

Refrain from posting any pictures of your new significant other or of you spending a lot of money or buying new things (car, boat, house, etc.). Putting this out there for all to see will impact how much you will wind up losing in the divorce and how much alimony you might have to pay.

Never berate, belittle, demean or call your spouse names on social media when going through a divorce. Again, these posts can be entered as evidence in court proceedings to show that you were an emotionally abusive spouse who never supported your significant other.

Social media is a powerful tool to spread news and other information. It can also be detrimental to a divorce case. Take the warnings to heart from this post and deactivate all of your social accounts until after your divorce is finalized.
