Social Media and Divorce
One of the biggest mistakes people make during a divorce is revealing details of their divorce on social media, such as Facebook or Twitter, and this is an avoidable mistake.
Public posts, emails and text messages can, in some instances, be submitted to the Court. If one party in the marriage reveals something about a new job, new salary or an upcoming bonus, that hasn’t been disclosed, this can be used as evidence to show that the person isn’t being honest in their financial disclosure!
Here at Vines Legal, we always advise you to keep all private information private and that during a divorce you should keep your personal information off of social media. If you don’t want a Judge reading it, don’t write it!
If you’re going through a divorce, you can be certain your spouse and their solicitor are combing through your online life. Protect yourself by staying away from all of your social media related accounts until the divorce is finalised.
Arming yourself with accurate legal information from the outset can be vital in the resolution of your matter and can make the process less stressful. If you are considering a divorce or your partner has requested it, call 01246 555 610 to arrange a free, no obligation consultation with one of our experienced solicitors.
