DOs and DON'Ts of Social Networking During a Divorce

It is actually advisable not to have a Facebook/Twitter and/or social network account during a divorce however if you must the following are a few Do’s and Don’t’s :

Social Networking During A Divorce
  1. DON’T post pictures or comments revealing a depraved, wild, or out of control party lifestyle. Craziness never reflects well in a divorce.

  2. DO pay close attention to photos your friends are posting of you or tagging you in. It is not just your page that will be watched. The people you affiliate with will be brought under scrutiny as well.

  3. DON’T post pictures or discussions regarding new purchases or vacations. You never want to paint an unrealistic picture of your personal finances.

  4. DO be selective about the information you share. Even the smallest comment can work against you in a divorce.

  5. DON’T post negatively about your Ex, your Ex’s family, your Ex’s attorney, or the Judge. Negativity gets you in more trouble than the immediate satisfaction is worth.

  6. DO try to paint the most positive, yet realistic, picture of yourself as you can. Posting pessimistic, depressing, or unflattering things about yourself only hurts you in the long run.

  7. DON’T complain about how difficult it is being a single parent or how exhausting it is raising children alone. If timesharing is a point of contention during the divorce, these comments may affect the Judge’s decision.

Client Reviews
Carmen G. Soto, PA and her amazing legal team is Excellent!!!! represented my daughter during divorce and we would absolutely recommend her!! Thank you and GOD BLESS YOU!! Ing. Delgado and Family
Carmen G. Soto, is an excellent attorney. She is very patient, knowledgeable, professional and my favorite.... flexible with payment plans. I was in need of an attorney to secure my sons future, and Carmen with her knowledge and experience provided the support we needed. I can honestly say that as a man/father we never get a fair chance in the courtrooms concerning family matters but Carmen made sure the Court systems saw past that stigma and justice was rightfully served. I would highly recommend Carmen G. Soto and her staff. Anonymous
Never having to use an attorney before, I was quite nervous and skeptical about my first meeting. Carmen Soto, not only made my first experience very comfortable, but was very informative and quite knowledgeable in the field of family law and divorce. She was there every step of the way for me as a support system, and her confidence and expertise made my otherwise very difficult situation, a very positive one. I highly recommend Carmen Soto. She is an excellent and compassionate attorney who clearly outlines all your options and takes a personal interest in your individual situation. Anonymous
