5 social media mistakes that can hurt your divorce

On Behalf of | Oct 4, 2022 | Divorce

Your divorce is an emotionally charged experience. When frustrations arise, you may turn to your friends and family on social media for comfort.

While a support system can help you survive divorce, airing too much on social media can do more harm than good. Here are five social media mistakes to avoid during your Massachusetts divorce.

1. Posting untrue or hurtful things about your future ex

Posting harmful things about your partner online can cause divorce proceedings to drag on and can potentially harm your case for child custody. Sharing your frustrations in person with a friend or family member you trust is a better option.

2. Oversharing

Divorce is a difficult time for everyone involved, including mutual friends and loved ones. When you share private aspects of your relationship, you potentially place those you care about in an awkward position.

3. Sharing photos of your kids in unsafe situations

You should avoid unsafe conditions for your children as a general rule, but you certainly should not post photos of an unsafe environment online. This action can threaten your eligibility for a favorable child custody arrangement.

4. Showing off expensive purchases

If you suddenly start posting photos of expensive purchases in the middle of a divorce, it may raise questions about how truthful you were in the asset division stage. Avoid sharing photos that others may misconstrue in this way.

5. Stalking or harassing your former partner

Stalking and harassing your ex online is not only wrong, but it can also damage your credibility in a divorce. If you present yourself as the bad guy, that reputation may prevail in divorce proceedings.

A divorce is often complicated by strong emotions and the desire to air them to your friends and family. Be sure to use caution when posting online.

She Was Aggressive And Never Backed Down

I found Lisa through reviews and was not disappointed. Lisa and her staff were great! They were very supportive and explained everything. She was aggressive and never backed down, even when I wanted to settle. She always looked out for my best interest, even when I didn’t want to. I can’t recall a single debate she lost during the entire case. If I were ever in a similar situation again (which will not be anytime in the foreseeable future!), I would call Lisa.
