Do you send emails, post on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or have a profile on Google Plus or LinkedIn? Social media and digital communications are part of many people’s daily routines and most of the time, you may not give a second thought to what you say. However, we all know how volatile emotions can be during divorce. And, you may feel tempted to just let loose, venting about your spouse in a Facebook post or email. While divorce is very personal, it’s also a legal process and emotional tirades don’t contribute to a good legal strategy. At C.E. Borman & Associates, our lawyers work closely with you, explaining how social media and other digital communications can adversely affect your case.
We share our laughter, our tears, our upsets and our anger online or in a text message. More than that, we share intimate details about our lives. Even more importantly, although your social media or other digital communications may be intended as private only for friends, it doesn’t always turn out that way.
Never have communications been as easily documented as they are with digital media. Whatever you say is recorded forever and can be made available in a court case through a subpoena. Airing private matters in a courtroom is not what most people want. When friends line up, taking sides in your divorce, your complaint made in confidence can be read aloud for the whole courtroom to hear. Even when you negotiate out-of-court, certain communications put you at a disadvantage.
While your spouse’s communications may provide ammunition for your case, remember that your communications may also be used in the same fashion.
A good policy to follow for social media and divorce is if you wouldn’t want the communication to be read in court, don’t post it.
