The rise of digital technology has paved the way for a whole new era of connectivity. Thanks to social media sites like Snapchat, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, you can now share photos, ideas, and information with friends and relatives around the world with a few clicks of a mouse or taps on a smartphone. If you are going through a divorce, understanding how social media can affect you and your case is extremely important. At Calabrese Associates, P.C., our knowledgeable team is ready to work with you in ensuring that social media does not create unnecessary obstacles to a favorable outcome.

Warrenville Attorneys for Divorce in the Digital Age

It is important to remember anything you post online could eventually find its way into the courtroom, so extreme caution is always advisable. The potential impact of pictures and other social media posts can be very unpredictable. It is understandable that you may not want to suddenly stop communicating with friends and family members due to your impending divorce.

Our attorneys can help you understand the possible legal dangers of oversharing. Angry posts filled with accusations, as well as photos of activities inconsistent with the information presented to the court could lead to complications in allocating parental responsibilities, determining spousal support, and dividing marital property.

With that in mind, we can help you develop a strategy for social media use that meets the needs of your particular situation. We will work with you to decide whether it is best to deactivate your accounts temporarily or continue using them in a limited manner.

Legal Advocates Helping You Build Your Case

Conversely, if your spouse or your child's other parent is posting questionable content or false information about you on social media, our attorneys can help you ensure that such posts are given due consideration by the court. When these type of posts represent a pattern of behavior, they can be used to bolster your own case for increased parenting time and other considerations. We can assist you in uncovering and documenting social media evidence, working within the law to ensure your rights are fully protected.

Sometimes, your spouse or partner may threaten to disseminate their private information to harass, humiliate, or discredit you.
