Stay Off Social Media If You Are Considering Divorce

If you are going through a divorce or contemplating leaving your spouse, it is very important to stay off of social media as much as possible. If you feel like you must create a social media post, make sure you NEVER use it to wage war against your spouse or co-parent. Unfortunately, Kanye West is not following this simple rule of thumb.

Keep Your Fight Private

Inviting the world into your personal issues is rarely a good idea. Passive-aggressive fights on social media show the world how unstable and immature you are and open the door to criticism which can fuel the fire. Your words will most likely be used against you, especially if custody is an issue. The more negative thoughts you publish during this time, the more you can expect to pay attorney fees to run damage control.

Social Media Fights Cause Harm To Children

Most importantly, consider the welfare of your children in this whole process. A situation with parents splitting up can be a traumatizing experience for any child. Furthermore, it’s not fair that innocent children get caught in the crossfire of a dispute. When negative emotions are expressed on social media, it’s out there, public, and forever. Your kids will see these posts. Even if the children are not old enough to see it now or are too young to understand what is happening, they may see it in the future. This can be very harmful to your children and your relationship with them.
