Attorney Helping Clients Address Electronic Evidence During Divorce Cases in Collin County

Getting a divorce can be a complex, emotional process, and it is understandable if you feel the need to vent about the situation and discuss it with others. If you are like most people, you probably spend time each day using social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or TikTok, and you may be tempted to post about your divorce on these channels. However, before doing so, you should be aware of the potential consequences, including whether the information you share may be used as evidence in your legal case.

At the Law Office of Linda Risinger, we can help you understand the legal issues that you will need to address during your divorce, and we can advise you on the best steps to take to protect your rights and achieve your goals. With more than 40 years of combined experience in multiple types of divorce and family law cases, we know about the issues that can complicate the divorce process and the types of evidence that may play a role in court proceedings. With our help, you can resolve divorce-related issues successfully and be prepared to move on with your life.

How Social Media May Affect Your Divorce

It is important to understand that any information you share online could potentially be used as evidence during your divorce. Even if you send private messages to a friend or family member, the information you share could make its way to your ex and their attorney. Because of this, you will want to be careful about discussing your divorce on social media, and you should be aware that other information about your life and activities could also be used as evidence.

Some issues that you will want to avoid when using social media during your divorce include:

  • Complaining about your spouse - If you are looking to pursue an amicable divorce, you will want to avoid doing anything that could jeopardize your negotiations or cause additional conflict. Even if you simply want to complain about the difficulty and stress of the divorce process, it is best to avoid doing so online. If your ex takes something the wrong way, what started out as an uncontested divorce can quickly become contentious, leading to additional time and expenses.
  • Sharing information about your finances - It makes sense to avoid discussing your income or property on social media, since this could affect the decisions made about property division, child support, or spousal support. However, you should be aware that seemingly unrelated posts could also play a role in these issues. For example, if you post pictures of a vacation that you recently took, these could be used to raise questions about the income you earn or the assets you own.
  • Saying anything that would affect your perception as a parent - You will especially want to avoid posting anything that could be used as evidence that you do not have the capability to care for your children, since this could affect decisions about child custody. For example, your parental fitness may be questioned if you post about needing an alcoholic drink due to the stress of your divorce or if you or someone you know shares photos of you using drugs at a party.
