Monitoring Social Media Use During Divorce | Dads Divorce | Divorce Tips


It’s increasingly common for an
individual social media use to factor into their divorce case
in fact Kordell and Cordell Tulsa family law attorney Natalie Sears says social
media plays a role in about ninety percent of her cases and some former
fashion it’s extremely common in fact nine times out of ten it is used in my
cases and so like I said it comes up very very frequently the one out of ten
times that a dozen is because that client doesn’t have social media
accounts so it’s pretty straightforward when they don’t but this also goes
actually hand-in-hand in regards just text message communication along with
email or any other written communication that you use with your smartphone that
can get us in trouble so it’s very important that they realize that
anything that they do say on social media text message email things of that
nature are often saved in a big database between attorneys that will come up in
conversation or any hearing which can lead to custodial battles like none
other Sears says that if you only use social
media to keep up with friends and family and don’t post very often it’s probably
okay to leave your account active however more times than not she
recommends that her clients completely shut down their accounts until their
divorce is finalized honestly my number one recommendation if they can bear it
would actually be to shut it down on a temporary basis it would be extremely
important that they do that honestly just because they removes the the
possibility for them to post something that would be inappropriate for a judge
to see or the opposing party to see because like I’d said previously emotion
can really get the best of us and a divorce proceeding and so whenever you
lash out on social media that does go and correlate and directly with the
opposing party the opposing counsel even if you don’t have a few even if you
aren’t friends and if you block you’re opposing the opposing party on social
media believe me there are friends watching and every aspect and so it can
be really dangerous to have a social media website that’s active and if you
are a frequent poster it can lead to problems if you don’t taper that emotion
