Most adults realize the implications of social media can be disastrous in a number of areas, including your professional and personal lives. What you may not be aware of is the impact social media has on child custody battles. Though you may feel as though you know what can or cannot be used against, you can never be sure. The opposition will be looking for concrete evidence which undermines your character, and the family courts are quite open to accepting social media as evidence in child custody cases--even if this evidence comes from another person’s profile, in which you are simply tagged.
Posting pictures which indicate your lifestyle is anything other than a stable, responsible adult are a bad idea. This includes photographs of lavish vacations, parties, or late night spent out of the home. Any status updates or photos indicating an alternative lifestyle, which may or may not include drug use, are absolutely out of the question. It is also important to note you should not have any provocative photos up--as well as any expressions of frustration or anger. Posting your status as someone without children on a dating app can be incredibly detrimental. Though you may see it as harmless, the courts may believe this indicates your lack of concern regarding your child.
