How social media can impact your Michigan divorce

On Behalf of | Apr 1, 2024 | Divorce

Social media is now a part of most of our daily lives and serves as a place we can share our thoughts and feelings. When going through an emotional event, such as a divorce, you may be tempted to use social media as an outlet for your feelings and a way to vent.

However, oversharing on social media during a divorce is not a good idea. While it might give you the temporary relief you seek, anything you post on social media could be used as evidence in court.

Consider deleting your accounts

For some, deleting all = social media accounts during the divorce may be the best idea, but if this is not a realistic option for you, refrain from posting anything about the divorce, your children or any custody action during this time.

A general rule is to assume anything you post will be read by a judge.

Additionally, make your social media accounts private and change all your passwords. Remove or block any people who you feel might be monitoring your posts and do not have your best interests in mind.

Overall, use common sense. It is natural to want to use a convenient and free option such as social media to express yourself at this time, but a counselor or therapist is often a better solution.
