As a Minnesota resident, you likely love social media just as much as people across the country. In fact, your joy of keeping up with your family and friends on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, etc. may result in your spending a significant amount of time on your cellphone, laptop, computer and other electronic devices. Unfortunately for you, however, if you and your spouse are headed for divorce, this is one time when social media can become your enemy, not the electronic BFF you thought it was.
Posting anything at all on Facebook about your divorce or the goings on between you and your spouse during it puts you at great risk for revealing information that (s)he and his or her attorney may well use against you in court. Before you laugh off this warning as ridiculous, you should be aware that as long ago as 2010, two-thirds of American divorce attorneys admitted that they regularly monitored Facebook. Why? Because that was where they found the most damaging evidence against their clients’ spouses.
