Social Media Don’t During a Divorce
Going through a divorce is never easy. It becomes even harder if you have a propensity toward “foot in mouth” disease. In court, you may be able to put on a straight face and to keep your comments to yourself for fear of prejudicing a divorce court judge against you during your court hearings. But how well are you faring on social media?
If You Can’t Say Anything Nice, Don’t Go on Social Media
There are a few basic “don’ts” that you should observe on social media during your divorce:
– Don’t delete your profile. An opposing attorney could point to this as deletion of crucial evidence that relates to your case.
– Don’t mention anything concerning your divorce on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat or any social media platform. . Practically anything you say on this subject could be interpreted wrongly and used against you in court.
– Don’t post any new content – especially related to guns, gambling, drinking, or sexy images of yourself, women or men. Any questionable image could be used by the opposing attorney as evidence against you to show, for example that you are unfit to have custody of your children or that you committed adultery causing the break-up of your marriage.
