It is common seeing some odd posts in social media that make you say, “Oh No.” While there may be genuine reasons for posting such information, one wonders what these people were thinking when posting these items. In today’s online world everything is permissible. But if you read carefully, some of these posts sound nasty and out of place, particularly the ones related to couples undergoing a divorce.
Too much information can hurt your divorce case. If you can’t control your posting impulses perhaps you should log out then log back in after the divorce process is finished. Ask your Fort Lauderdale divorce attorney what to do.
Think before you share
I want to share some things with friends and family, think well before you post. Think about how your posting activity can affect your divorce case and how your former spouse may use this information against you in court. Perhaps your posts show that you are immature and irresponsible therefore you can’t be trusted to act in your child’s best interests. Some parents post about their whereabouts, including a late night out drinking with friends. This is not the time to post such things.
Don’t talk bad about the judge
Remember this is the person that will decide who gets the children. If the judge finds out about your negative comments, you will not be happy about the outcome of your divorce case. It is easy to seek sympathy from loved ones who have been in similar situations, but think before you say anything. It’s just not a good idea.
Keep your opinions about your ex to yourself
While posting a few things about your former spouse cheating on you may seem like the right thing to do, this is not the right time to share that information. Anything you post could be printed and used against you in court. This is particularly true in a contested divorce case.
If you have to think twice don’t post
If you are not sure about posting some information, don’t post it. Your ex can misinterpret your post, as well as your mutual friends. You must fight the urge to post inappropriate information and avoid unnecessary arguments with your former spouse that could be used against you in court. Respect the terms of your divorce. It’ll save you a lot of headaches.
Your privacy settings
It is very shocking seeing people in social media sharing where they are. You must check the privacy settings and avoid sharing too many details about your current location and daily routine. Remember you are providing your ex-spouse with valuable information that could be used against you.
Log out and stay calm
You don’t need to share every detail about your life. Yes, you have a right to be angry. But is it worth it? You can be on the safe side when you listen to your Fort Lauderdale divorce attorney. Call us today and allow us to work on your case.
