Whether you want to believe it or not, social media can have an impact on a divorce. From child custody disputes, alimony issues and property division conflicts, information can be found on various social media accounts. Uploaded photos, comments, correspondence, messages and other types of communication used via social media accounts can seriously affect a divorce case. If you are seeking a divorce, it is extremely important that you take social media seriously and consult with an attorney on how to take measures to prevent it from harming your case.

The use of social media may seem innocent enough but a single picture, comment or message posted by you or another individual relevant to your divorce case can make a huge impact, most likely a negative impact on your divorce. If you do not have the right privacy settings on your social media accounts (although we highly recommend you take them down immediately to begin with), then everything is exposed for the entire world to see. This includes the opposing counsel who can use this information against you.
Photos, wall posts, tweets and other forms of social media communication can provide incriminating evidence that can be used in child custody battles and other issues related to the division of assets and liabilities. Be smart and always err on the side of caution. If you have to think twice about whether something is appropriate or if it could be used against you, then do not put it up on the Internet for all to see.
