Social Media and Divorce in Illinois
Wheaton Divorce Attorney Cautions Divorce Clients on Facebook, Twitter and Texting
Social networking sites, such as Facebook and Twitter, have become immensely popular amongst people of all ages. While these sites are terrific for keeping up with friends and family members, they can also be dangerous for spouses who are involved in a divorce. It is important to think twice before posting a message or a photo on the Web that may later come back to haunt you.
At the law firm of Andrew Cores Family Law Group, we have seen the negative impact that social media posts can have on divorce, including the negative effects on credibility and the potential settlement of the case. These posts may include tagging photographs of friends; comments about lawyers, judges or spouses; and even the friending or unfriending of certain individuals.
Experienced Illinois Family Law Attorneys Providing Sound Advice for a Digital Age
It is a wise rule of thumb not to post anything online that you would not be comfortable having your estranged spouse, his or her attorney, a guardian ad litem, or a family court judge see. Even if you believe that your social networking is "private," it can be fairly easy to uncover this information, since digital footprints last forever and can result in permanent damage. Search engines index comments, photos, blog posts and other information.
If you have questions regarding social media and divorce, and other important steps to take to protect your rights, our family law firm can provide important answers and advice. We can also guide you through the process of divorce as effectively as possible.
