Why it is Important to be Careful About What You Post on Social Media

Contact Us Today!

Due to the recent outbreak of the Coronavirus, the people of New York and many more around the country are being asked to stay inside and socially isolate themselves in an effort to slow down the spread of the disease. This is leading people to spend a great deal of time on social media in an effort to find entertainment. While this may be a decent distraction, it is important to remember how to use these platforms appropriately during this time, especially if you are going through a divorce.

If you are currently going through a divorce or you did in the past, improper social media usage can significantly impact divorce proceedings and their outcome. This may be if you speak poorly about your former spouse or soon-to-be former spouse. Arguing with them on social media can also be a red flag, as courts can watch a person’s social media throughout this time to ensure they are not engaging in poor behavior. These actions can work against you during proceedings and affect the outcome.

Other online behavior that can harm divorce proceedings can include posting certain pictures, such as drinking or partying. This can be used against a parent looking to obtain custody of their child. Spouses looking to obtain alimony or child support payments should also refrain from posting pictures of new purchases, vacations, and more. In these situations, it is best to keep your privacy in order to avoid difficult divorce proceedings.

What Our Clients Are Saying

I hired Susan to represent me in a divorce matter where I was fighting for custody and to limit my wife's equitable share of our assets. I won custody of our son, kept the marital residence, kept my professional practice, kept my building and paid less than half to my wife. This was after a long-term marriage. She could persuade the court that equitable is not equal and sometimes the man does deserve to win!

‐ Dave

I first must say that I had been represented by two prior attorneys both of whom had simply taken my money and left me nothing to show for it in my custody case. They kept telling me what they were doing for me but I found out they were lying. Susan on the other hand had gotten me temporary custody and support for my children and myself within two months of hiring her. I cannot say enough about her.

‐ Craig

After talking to a few other attorneys, I hired Susan to represent me in my divorce and custody dispute. I was reluctant to go with her because she was the cheapest out of all the other attorneys I met with, but I'm so glad I did. I am 100% positive no one else would have done such a great job with my case as Susan and her staff. Her work is quality, her staff is reliable and her character is honorable. There...

‐ Linda

I had a very difficult case where I had already burned through two attorneys who were unable to get me custody of my children and complete my divorce. Susan was able to rapidly work out an agreement and not let it just malinger on like my previous experiences. She was also considerate of my financial situation unlike all of the other lawyers I had spoken to. I highly recommend her if you want complete and caring service with an in-depth knowledge of...
