Social media and your custody case

There are all sorts of different factors that can have an impact on a case involving child custody, such as a parent’s income, the child’s own preferences and domestic violence. In the digital age, additional considerations have arisen when it comes to child custody cases. For example, the information that someone shares via social media could have an impact on their custody case. Whether you are worried about the type of information you should share online or are concerned about something that your child’s other parent has shared, it is very important to be careful.

If you post something that can be considered threatening, share information related to drugs or heavy alcohol use or indicate that you live a party lifestyle, this could affect your ability to secure custody. For example, if you were supposed to be watching the kids on a particular evening and share footage of you and your friends spending the night out drinking, this could be used against you.

You may also be concerned about some of the posts you see from your child’s other parent. For example, they may share something that indicates they are very angry or potentially violent. Or, you may be worried that they have developed a serious drug or alcohol problem, which can be especially likely in the wake of a tough divorce. It is important to make note of these issues and do what you can to protect your child’s interests.

Each time I met with Dianne she was concerned for my well being, and was sincerely empathetic about my situation. She made a horrible chapter in my life bearable.
