Social media and custody disputes

On Behalf of | Jun 28, 2019 | Child Custody |

There are many different factors that you may need to review if you are in the midst of a dispute over child custody, or you anticipate that such a dispute will arise in the near future. You should always look out for your child’s best interests, and you should do what you can to make the custody process as straightforward as possible while minimizing the emotional toll. However, custody disputes can be very difficult, regardless of a parent’s attempts to make things easier, and there are all sorts of factors that may come into play with regard to custody disputes. In the digital era, social media has become increasingly common, and online activity can definitely play a role in custody decisions.

For starters, it is important for you to be vigilant with respect to the information you share on social media. If you decide to post something that could be used against you, it may have a negative impact on your pursuit of custody rights. Sometimes, even information that may seem harmless, whether the content consists of text, images or video, can influence the outcome of a custody dispute.

If your child’s other parent is sharing concerning material on social media, you should examine your options and it may be smart to bring this up in court. If you are worried about your ex’s ability to raise your child and provide them with the resources and care that they need, you should strive to protect your child’s best interests and pursue a favorable outcome.
