If you are currently in a divorce battle with your spouse, your online profiles can make all the difference. If you are a Facebook user, you need to be conscientious of what you post during this time. Chances are that your ex-spouse and his or her lawyer will be monitoring your Facebook for any posts or photos that can be used against you.
For example, if you are involved in a custody battle your ex will probably want to make you look like a bad parent. Those photos that you posted of your party at a strip club downtown or the pictures of your drinking large amounts of alcohol could break your case and cause you to lose custody. You will want to be extremely cautious about the photos you post and the locations that you check-in to online. Also, caution your family and friends to avoid posting photos where they may tag you.
It is also important that you avoid posting any photos of or statuses about big purchases you may have made on vacations or items. This may affect your ability to get the alimony, spousal support, or child support that you would prefer in your divorce case. For example, if you received a new BMW, then posting about this on your Facebook will alert your ex-spouse that you have enough money to raise the children without his or her help.
Even if the vehicle was a gift, it may be hard to prove your case. The same goes with luxurious vacations, which may cause it to look like you are far better off financially than you actually are. If you want more information, contact a Valencia divorce attorney at Barnholtz & Kugler today.
