Reasons to Keep Your Divorce Private and Off Social Media

Reasons to Keep Your Divorce Private and Off Social Media

Amidst the new coronavirus, many of us will now have more and more time to spend on social media. Of course, there is nothing wrong with using social media, however, if you are going through a divorce, or were even recently divorced, you must be very careful about you most. Unfortunately, for many people, it is often difficult not to overshare on social media, and this urge can become even more powerful if you have a former spouse who decides to start an argument.

While you may be perfectly justified in responding, we would have to advise you not to. Oftentimes, trash-talking your former spouse on social media, no matter how bad he/she deserves it, will have the opposite effect, especially if courts are still deciding on the terms of your divorce. Courts tend to look down on this behavior. Additionally, and perhaps more importantly, when you make your divorce private, it can have a very negative effect on your children, as you can be sure they do not wish to see their parents fight.

Furthermore, let’s say you are someone who is claiming you require alimony or child support payments. If you post a picture of you and your friends on your recent vacation, or even of a new, significant purchase, such as a car, your spouse may use this against you as evidence that you do not truly require such payments. All in all, there is a multitude of reasons why it is a bad idea to post your divorce on social media, which is why our firm strongly advises against it.
