Tips for using social media during a divorce

On Behalf of | Dec 21, 2023 | Divorce

Life during divorce comes with a lot of major changes. One of these that you may not expect is having to be cautious about what you post on social media. While you may not think much about that, there’s a chance that your soon-to-be ex is watching your posts.

Some people choose to simply stay silent on social media while they’re going through a divorce. Others may choose to remain active. If you want to remain active on your social media accounts during your divorce, here are a couple of reminders.

Posts are never temporary

One of the most important things to remember on social media is that everything is permanent. There’s always the option to delete posts, but you can’t control who saw them and took screenshots of the things you said or showed. With that in mind, it’s best to play it safe and only post things you wouldn’t mind having to explain to a judge in court.

Comments on others’ posts matter

You can’t think only about your own posts. You also have to think about what you say when it comes to other people’s posts and pictures. It’s best if you’re mindful about comments and even what you “like” while you’re on all social media accounts.

Divorce is an emotional time for both parties, but social media isn’t a good place to voice frustrations and disappointments. Taking the time to learn more about your options in all facets of your divorce can reduce the stress involved. Having experienced legal guidance is crucial to protecting your interests.
