Reduce or eliminate posting to all social media during a divorce in Louisville or anywhere in Kentucky? Divorce cases today can be much more complex. Technology and social media actually creates evidence that can be used against you in divorce court. For this reason you should be very careful when using any sort of social media or technology such as a cell phone or email.
Did you realize that anything you post online, send in a chat or email can be used against you in the divorce? You may believe your online accounts at Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat or private messaging services attached to these accounts and others such as Linkedin are secure. They simply aren’t. And after decades of experience in Louisville divorce cases we can tell you there is no such thing as “private” in this day and age.
It is surprising how often information from supposedly “private” online and technology sources winds up in the wrong hands and before us in Court. If you are not perfectly comfortable with your ex, your children, your community, family, friends, your religious leaders and the judge reading whatever it is you are writing or posting then you shouldn’t write or post.
It is an excellent strategy to reduce or eliminate posting to all social media during a divorce as much as possible. It is also important to pay attention to electronic communications such as e-mails and texts. If your ex attempts to get into an argument in any electronic medium turn your cell phone or computer off and walk away. It could actually be a strategy to get you to provide written evidence that can be used against you in child custody or other aspects of your case.
It is never in your interests to provide social media or electronic evidence that could lead to prejudicial findings against you based upon abusive communications or allegations of threats or domestic violence? It simply isn’t worth the risk.
Social media and all communications and online activities can actually be used against you in a divorce. It can cost you money and even limit your freedoms. It can impact child custody or parenting time orders. Protect yourself. Stay off social media, turn off your phone or PC and walk away.
