Carefully monitoring online posts to prevent divorce tension

On Behalf of | Jul 30, 2019 | Divorce |

One way Tennessee couples who are splitting up can minimize divorce tension is by carefully monitoring their online social media posts. Even before making the decision to seek a divorce, couples should be careful about making any relationship-related posts. Online content can be used during the divorce later on.

It’s wise to carefully monitor online updates, including past posts, and even delete those that can be taken as offensive against the ex. During the divorce, it is also important to avoid posting the intimate details regarding property division and custody agreements. Though it might seem drastic, it’s also a good idea to review the contact list of social media forums and to delete those contacts that might instigate further tension with the ex.

Parents who are separating might also need to come to an agreement on their children’s online presence. This might include limiting the types of online updates that reveal details about the children’s lives. Even after the divorce, the parents need to remember that online posts can be a reflection of their parenting and the family relationship. Therefore, it might be a good idea to continue to maintain limits. However, it’s important to note that the internet can also provide a positive forum for communication between ex-spouses who are raising children together.

When planning for a divorce, a spouse might want to seek the assistance of a lawyer with family law experience. An attorney can provide information about property division, represent the client in legal proceedings and negotiations and offer additional support during the process.
