Social Media May Derail Your Divorce Settlement

Social media is a fantastic tool to help you stay connected to friends, loved ones, and the rest of the world. At the same time, however, it can prove to be something of a double-edged sword as what you share on it can be brought up in court. This could affect your divorce settlement negatively, including the chances of obtaining custody.

Finances remain an important aspect of any divorce. If you’re frequently making posts about your income, the pricey luxury item you just purchased, or if you’re checking into five-star hotels, these could be construed by a judge in a way that may suggest you may be hiding assets or you’re more well off than your paperwork suggests.

Speaking of custody, divorces involving children can be difficult and may involve strong emotions. Making angry posts against your soon to be former spouse or showcasing pictures that may put your ability to parent effectively in question could raise legal eyebrows in a not so good way.

Chances are you became friends or social media acquaintances with many people through your then spouse. Though you may have blocked your ex, your mutual friends may be reporting your activity to them. Again, be careful of what you share.
