Airing your divorce on social media: think hard about that

It's not exactly a rocket-science observation to note that we live in a progressively technology-driven world, with many millions of people now having a quite public profile online.

Those various social media sites are truly myriad, and they are proliferating with a constancy that is truly riveting. Some people spend hours each day communicating with others.

Is that a good thing?

Well, it certainly can be, to an extent, given that connecting through social media is a fast and effective way to stay in touch with family members and friends.

A commentator in one recent article notes, though, that there can be a definite downside to sharing information on the web with, potentially, legions of other people.

And that downside is rather obvious. As noted by the above-cited writer in a discussion of divorce and social media, the information that any party disseminates on the Internet is "somewhere out there floating in cyberspace." Moreover, it is quite possible that such will permanently be the case.

That may be quite alright for a harmless picture or a rather innocuous entry concerning a get-together in your Southern California home, but can the same be said about an emotional detail regarding an impending or recent divorce?

As the above commentator notes, the inclination to share -- that is, to vent, complain, cry, revel, reach out, whatever -- at certain times during the divorce process is readily understandable. The experience is singular and all-encompassing, and the need for a bit of outside communication is anything but aberrational.

There are many reasons to resist posting things online, though, as related by the above writer.

And they can especially loom large when the subject matter relates to marital dissolution.

  • Best Attorney in the Valley!

    Kendra Thomas is one of the best attorneys I have ever worked with. Kendra and her team at Thomas Law Offices are compassionate and able to get to the heart of the matter. Not only can she quickly take in information, she can also think outside of the box to implement an effective game plan…. - Joseph, a Corporate client

  • Amazing Family Law Advocate!

    Kendra is a very thorough attorney. She paid great attention to detail. She is a pitbull in the courtroom and received compliments from the judge. We won a majority of our motions. I found her to be reasonable and understanding. I highly recommend her!- William, a Divorce client (5 star review)

  • One of the Best Advocates Around!

    I had a complicated case with a lot of assets. We had a business to divide and could not make heads or tails of it. My previous
    attorney messed up the case. However, when we found Thomas Law, the attorney was able to get to the bottom of how our assets should be divided.
    When Ms. Thomas presented the case, the judge realized that she knew her stuff. I had a very good experience with this firm.- Mae, a Family client (5 star review)

  • Competence! The Best Family Law Attorney Around!!

    When I first came to Kendra, was in a panic state. However, after meeting Kendra, I panic no more. I was in a case, where I was being worked “real good”, with an ex who is relentless with absolutely no morals. However, after being in the courtroom with Kendra, I do not believe that he will ever take me back to court. We got everything we wanted. Kendra knew what to ask and how to strategize the case. I would HIGHLY recommend Kendra to anyone involved in a high conflict divorce and/or child custody dispute.- Sharon, a Family client (5 star review)


    I am so grateful to have found Attorney Kendra Thomas to help me through a difficult divorce. She was amazing in getting me the justice I deserved. I have never heard of an attorney that returns calls promptly however Ms. Thomas and her assistant return calls in the same day. She is brilliant both in her intellect and strategy. I will continue to use her in ANY legal matter I am engaged in.- Mary, a Family client (5 star review)
