Facebook And Colorado Divorce Law

Technology makes it easy for us to stay connected constantly.

According to a survey of adults between the ages of 18 and 64, the average American spends more than three hours a day on social media sites.

Although we're plugged into social media constantly, many people don't think twice before posting pictures or status updates to Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or other social media sites. However, if you are working through divorce or other family law proceedings, you need to be mindful about what you post online.

At Tolison & Williams, Attorneys at Law, LLC, we represent individuals throughout the north Denver metro and the Boulder Valley areas in a range of family law matters. If you are unsure what is appropriate to post during divorce, contact us.

Is It OK To Post On Facebook During The Divorce Process?

Under Colorado divorce law, social media posts — including Facebook status updates or pictures — may be used as evidence in court.

You do not need to stop using Facebook during divorce, but you should consider the following suggestions before posting:
  • Do not discuss your case.
  • Do not say anything negative about your ex.
  • Do not say anything disparaging about the judge handling your case.
  • Do not post pictures that show you drinking or partying.
  • Do not post pictures or updates about a new significant other.
