I previously blogged on 5 Family Law FaceBook Don’ts. This was a very popular blog topic and continues to generate a lot of traffic. This post lists 5 more things you should not be doing on FaceBook with regards to your family law case.
Posting inappropriate stuff on FB is not just an American thing. 1/5 of Australian divorces use FB postings to discredit some testimony that was offered by one party and FB activities are showing up in about 1/3 of United Kingdom divorce cases. Familyandthelaw.com.au
5 More Things not to Put on FaceBook:
- Don’t post Pictures of the other party, whether they be flattering or not.
- Don’t post Pictures of the children doing activities with captions that note the other parent’s absence.
- Don’t post Pictures of your new squeeze in a “Parenting Role” that is intended to inflame the other side.
- Don’t comment on your friend’s drama and “one-up” them with your own.
- Don’t allow your FB friends to bash your Ex.
Stay tuned for more FaceBook don’ts, as I have enough material to make this one a series and unfortunately am learning of new things not to do on an almost daily basis.

And don’t post pictures of you with your kids if the court has enjoined you from being on the internet when the kids are with you – don’t exploit the kids by posting pics of everything you do when they’re with you, visitation is for you to spend quality time with your kids not to put the world on notice of when/where you’re spending time with them.
