If you, like so many across West Virginia, are working through an impending divorce, you may find that your life has changed dramatically from what is was several weeks, months or even years ago. Often, people who are navigating their way through a divorce find that they rely more on social media, whether for entertainment, to make new connections or what have you. If you are not careful when doing so, however, the things you say and do online may come back to haunt you. At Herrenkohl Law Office, we understand how your use of social media can negatively impact your divorce, and we have helped many clients work their way through separations, divorces and a range of related issues.
Per Prevention, one way in which your use of social media may impact your divorce is that your posts could potentially come into play when determining alimony arrangements, child custody decisions and so on. Therefore, it is typically wise to consider taking a “less is more” approach to your use of social media throughout your divorce. Hold off on checking in at a restaurant with someone who might be seen as a romantic interest, and think twice before posting pictures of a dream vacation or other major purchase.
