Social media is a great way to communicate and stay in touch with others. But it can also serve as a source of encouragement and support when you are going through a divorce in Dallas.
However, you should be cautious when using social media during a divorce. Your ex’s attorney may look for things that could be used against you.
The following are 10 tips for using social media during a divorce case:
- temporarily deactivate your accounts or at least limit time spent on them;
- change your privacy settings so that only family and friends can see what is posted;
- always assume your ex can see or read what you post no matter your settings;
- do not say negative things about the other parent, especially if your children can see what you post;
- go through your pictures/videos and delete any that could be used against you;
- think before you post a tweet/status update or comment on others;
- be careful of any photos or posts that others tag you in;
- make sure your children have appropriate privacy settings on their social media accounts;
- talk to your child about what they post so nothing can be used against you; and
- never use social media as a way to vent.
Taking precautions and being smart about your use of social media can prevent further problems down the road.
