“Dance like no one is watching, email like it will one day be read in a deposition”
I often use Facebook messages, posts, or photos in family court matters. Often, these posts can prove contempt of court, an illicit affair, or assist my client in obtaining a favorable custody settlement. It may feel good to post a status regarding your former spouse on Facebook, but social media is not a platform to air grievances.
I recommend to all my clients to take a social media hiatus pending litigation. For the immediate future, every word, tweet, post, or action is under a microscope.
