What Do You Do With Social Media After Divorce?

Written by Russell Alexander ria@russellalexander.com / (905) 655-6335

It is always advisable to remain civil on social media after divorce, especially if children are involved. It is important to remain mindful of how your online presence reflects your parenting and the lives of your children. People need to remember that anything posted online is available forever, both to the public and the opposing party.

Both child-related matters as well as financial matters aren’t over just because separation agreements have been signed or court orders have been made, so taking some precautions online can help you avoid returning to court in the future.
