Social media has become an essential aspect of daily life for many people in Indiana. It is a platform that encourages the sharing of news, feelings and opinions, activities and business. It is also a place where separating couples air their dirty laundry, search for evidence to use against their spouses in divorce court and post things to upset their ex-partners. Before you get to spying or posting information to knock your ex-spouse off her or his square, you may want to consider why it is prudent to watch what you do and say on social media during a divorce.
If you are not careful, your social media activity can damage your credibility and derail your divorce and child custody case. Your online activities can become admissible as evidence in the courtroom, even if what you post is not true. Though you have the right to use your social media profiles in any way you see fit as long as you remain in compliance with the site’s terms, when it comes to divorce, the judge may rule otherwise.
