Social Media and Family Court
PARENTAL ALIENATION AND SOCIAL MEDIA
If you are the victim of parental alienation you should consult with a parental alienation lawyer.
Today, many victims of parental alienation are resorting to social media to express outrage and or emotional grief regarding their predicament.
I don’t ever think its good to use social media for something as personal as parental alienation. However, there is a growing community and some find comfort in corresponding with others. If you do plan on using social media consider the following:
USE SOCIAL MEDIA TO:
- Bring awareness to parental alienation
- Connect with others
- Support others
- Commentary (limited)
DON’T USE SOCIAL MEDIA TO:
- Disparage your ex-partner
- Post numerous pictures of your alienated children
- Derogatory or defamatory commentary about the court system
- Naming and shaming a judge
- Derogatory or defamatory commentary about your lawyer
- Derogatory or defamatory commentary about the other lawyer
- Videos of your children
- Argue with others
Also, if you do plan on using social media it may be appropriate to use an anonymous account. You may also consider locking your account and be selective of who you permit access.
While some post pictures of their alienated children in the hopes they will one day connect. This could also backfire. I know of at least one situation where the child on becoming a teenager complained that her father was consistently posting pictures of her without her consent. She also told her father to stop following her account on social media. This was a father who had dealt with over 10 years of parental alienation.
Use caution when discussing any ongoing court case. While its great to receive support from your on-line community you don’t want to say anything incriminating.
Whatever the case you should always use professional judgement when posting on social media regarding parental alienation. Remember the internet is forever. What you post can be used against you in court. It can be used to demonstrate your judgement, frame of mind and character.
