Can Social Media Affect a Divorce?

Contact a Hunterdon County Divorce Lawyer at Tune Law Group, LLC for Help Navigating Your Divorce

When going through a divorce, you may be tempted to put details in public for people to see. It is common to want support from as many people as possible. When this involves social media, you are playing a dangerous game because you lose control of the information as soon as it is posted. What you say can be used against you in court.

Be Careful About What You Say Publicly

When in doubt, err on the side of caution. The general approval and encouragement you may get from a social media post may not be worth the risk it poses to you and your divorce case.

Even if your posts are set to private, you must always assume that your spouse can access them. In other words, everything becomes public the second you lose control of the post. You never quite know which of your social media friends will tell your spouse about what you posted or even take a screenshot to give them. Your spouse’s attorney may be able to obtain old posts from you in the discovery process. You may face many risks once your social media posts are known.

Anything You Say May Be Used as Evidence in a Divorce Case

Things you post on social media could be used in a child custody matter. Remember that you may have to go through the discovery process in your divorce. Your spouse’s attorney could question you under oath for some time.

In addition, if your spouse manages to access your social media, they could obtain evidence that they may try to use for their case. If they have your password, they may obtain any communications you made through your social media account. Changing passwords to fully protect yourself in a divorce only takes a few minutes.
