5. Uploading Photos
In many states, the determination of parenting time hinges on the “best interest of the children.” If you have children, keep their photos off your social media account. Even the best intentioned, innocent photographs can be twisted into an argument against your parenting ability. That silly photo of the baby holding the empty beer bottle is suddenly not so funny in court.
When going through a divorce, my best advice is to ghost on your social media accounts. Your divorce will be over soon. I promise. Until then, browse the feeds in the proverbial social-media silence. Your safest bet in these next few months is to keep your opinions, photos and LIKES to yourself. It will be hard, but it may be the difference in the outcome of your case. Remember, “anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law.” Don’t give your ex, or their attorney, a reason to pit your followers against you.
