Social media and custody disputes

When it comes to child custody, there are a wide variety of factors for parents to consider, from financial issues and daily schedules to factors that courts go over when making a custody decision. That said, it is important to bear in mind that other challenges may arise, especially in the digital era. For example, a parent may run into problems as a result of social media, either from their activity on an online platform or online actions carried out by their child’s other parent.

If you are in the midst of a custody dispute, you should be careful with respect to the information you share online. For example, certain types of information related to your financial condition, your lifestyle, or negative feelings could have an impact on your case. Whether this activity takes the form of videos, blog posts, or short amounts of text, some information can be damaging to one’s custody case. Moreover, you may notice that your child’s other parent has shared inappropriate or accusatory information on the internet. In some instances, it might be best to ignore the posts and move ahead, staying focused on the case. However, there are also times when it might be important to bring this up in court, such as situations which involve a parent posting threats online.

Custody cases can be hard for a number of reasons, but it is crucial for parents to keep their focus, especially with so much at stake. Browse to the custody page on our law office’s site for more on this area of family law.
