Social media and high-asset divorce

| Oct 17, 2017 | High-Asset Divorce |

In a recent blog post, we examined some of the issues that high-profile couples may experience when they decide to end their marriage. In the information age, there is another area of concern relevant to high-profile divorces and those who want to split up with their spouse when they have a high net worth: social media. Our firm knows the many ways that social media can affect those who are working through the divorce process, whether they post something they regret or are upset about information their spouse is sharing.

During a divorce, it can be tempting to express your thoughts and feelings through a social networking site. However, if you say the wrong thing, this could have a negative impact on your case, whether you are fighting for custody or dealing with other divorce-related matters. If you are a high-profile person, or have a high net worth, you may have an even larger following on social media, which is why you should be especially careful about what you choose to post.

On the other hand, if your spouse has spread lies about you or other types of harmful information through social media, you may want to bring this to the court’s attention. In the digital age, it is vital to keep a close watch on the type of information you decide to share with the world. If you navigate to the section of our site that is concentrated on high net worth divorce, you can access more on the end of marriage.
