Divorce and online activity

Divorcing couples in New Jersey sometimes end up in situations where they do not fully trust the other person. One spouse might suspect that the other person is cheating on them or perhaps that they are trying to hide assets in an attempt to influence their final divorce decree in a financially more positive light for them. These are just some of the situations that may be able to be corroborated by a peek at a person's online activity.

Forbes explains that a social media account can be a virtual treasure trove of clues about a person's life. Posts bragging about lavish purchases or vacations may not help the case of a person who claims the complete inability to pay spousal support, for example. The accounts of friends may also be telling and since couples generally have joint friends online and offline, what they post may well be visible by the spouse who was not really intended to know something.

According to Prevention magazine, people in the midst of a divorce should take extra precautions when it comes to their online profiles and updates. It must always be remembered that not only can the other person see what is said or shown but so too can a couple's children or other family members.

For the person who is tempted still to share many of the details about their divorce, remembering thta potential employers commonly review the social media accounts of candidates might offer yet another reason to take a more conservative approach to thees profiles.
