Social media has become a staple part of life for millions of Americans. People go to Facebook, Twitter and other outlets to tell others about what is going on in their lives, and usually they do it without much thought about potential consequences. If you find yourself going through a divorce, however, it is important that you realize how your social media activity might affect the outcome of the case.

How Can Social Media Activity Affect a Divorce Case in Illinois?
Facebook, Twitter and similar platforms are often an outlet for raw emotion and snap decisions. People post things online that they would almost never say in person. Once published, it cannot be taken back.
Some postings contain words that can be interpreted as threats of domestic violence. In other situations, someone who has been arguing that he or she cannot afford to pay child support or alimony suddenly posts pictures of himself or herself on vacation, a large expenditure that shows the person is far from broke.
Social media and divorce are two topics that in today's world must be through about carefully. At the Law Offices of Donald J. Cosley, we have represented clients whose spouses made Facebook or Twitter postings that were threats against or lies about our client.
