Should you keep using social media during your divorce?

On Behalf of | Apr 26, 2024 | Divorce |

Social media has become an integral part of modern life, allowing people to connect, share and communicate with others online. Like most people, you may use social media on a daily basis.

If you have decided to get divorced, you may wonder if you should consider using these sites during the process. While you do not necessarily need to quite social media, navigating these platforms during a divorce can present unique challenges and considerations.

Be mindful of your posts

Avoid posting anything that could be misconstrued or used against you in legal proceedings. This includes avoiding negative or inflammatory comments about your ex-spouse, discussions about financial matters or posts that may reflect poorly on your character.

Consider the impact on your children

If you have children, consider how your social media activity may impact them during the divorce process. Avoid posting anything that could be distressing or embarrassing to your children, such as details about custody arrangements or negative comments about your co-parent.

Adjust your privacy settings

Take advantage of privacy settings on social media platforms to control who can see your posts and information. Consider adjusting your privacy settings to limit who can view your profile, posts and photos.

Avoid discussing legal matters

Posting about court proceedings, negotiations or legal strategies can potentially harm your case and may violate confidentiality agreements. Instead, keep discussions about legal matters private and limited to conversations with your lawyer or trusted advisors.
