Divorce & Social Media: Your Posts Can Impact Your Case

Social Media
Divorce is a difficult process, and with the advent of social media, it can become even more complicated. Social media can have an impact on your divorce case in a variety of ways, and it’s important to understand how your posts, pictures, and interactions can affect the outcome of your divorce.

What to Avoid on Social Media During Divorce

When you’re going through a divorce, it’s best to avoid certain activities on social media:
  • Posting pictures or status updates that portray you in a negative light, such as drinking or partying
  • Talking badly about your ex-spouse or their family
  • Making any statements that could be seen as an admission of adultery, hiding assets, or other wrongdoing
  • Posting pictures or updates that could be seen as bragging or flaunting your assets
  • Posting pictures or updates that could be seen as an attempt to influence the court’s decision

How Social Media Can Impact Your Divorce Case

Your social media activity can have a direct impact on your divorce case. For example, if you post pictures of yourself partying or drinking, it could be used against you in court. In addition, if you post pictures or updates that show you bragging or flaunting your assets, it could be used to prove that you have more assets than you are claiming. This could lead to a larger settlement or alimony payment. Finally, if you post anything disparaging about the judge and their decision, you could even find yourself in contempt of court.
