Social media posts may be misconstrued during a divorce

Many people use social media these days. Whether you use Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, SnapChat or one of the many other sites, you need to be careful about what you say if you are going through a divorce. Divorce lawyers might find information and use it against you during the legal proceedings.

One thing that many people don't realize is that using caution about what you post is actually a good idea even before you are going through a divorce. Sometimes, the information that a person finds on social media might end up being the factor that leads to the divorce. In all cases, be sure that you are thinking about how posts might seem.

On the internet, it is hard to make sure that everything you say is coming out how you want it to. Simple statuses might be meant to say one thing, but a person reading it might take it to mean something completely different. This can be problematic when you are going through the legal proceeding to end your marriage.

Another thing to watch when you have social media accounts is how pictures appear. You might know that the yacht you took a picture on was part of a work event; however, others might not be aware. Your friend may tag you in a picture from the yacht with a caption that doesn't allude to the event. This might lead your ex to claim that you have hidden assets and are using those to be able to party on that level.

In all cases, make sure that you are thinking about how specific posts and pictures might be taken by the general public. This may be a good indication of how your ex and their counsel will view the posts.
