Digital bullying and theft during a divorce

On Behalf of | Apr 15, 2022 | Divorce

Divorce is a complex and emotionally challenging process that impacts every member of a New Jersey family. The two divorcing parties may have difficulty communicating and working together during the process because of the interpersonal issues that remain between them. In some cases, one spouse may act irrationally or unfairly, even doing things intentionally to intimidate or undermine the other.

With many aspects of personal lives now online, it is easy to see how one’s digital life can become an integral part of a divorce. In some cases, a spouse who is acting unfairly or irrationally may use online forums to bully the other party. It is also possible for digital theft to occur where a spouse may use access to certain accounts to take money, hide assets or keep a spouse out of accounts.

Digital lives and divorce

As seen in the complicated and public divorce of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, online bullying can make a difficult process even more difficult. Mr. West has aired grievances and expressed personal feelings on social media, and this could ultimately negatively affect his divorce case. It is helpful for a spouse to remember that anything posted on social media is subject to use against him or her in divorce court. It is prudent to refrain from posting about divorce-related matters online.

Online harassment and bullying is something that courts take seriously, even if one spouse is directing these actions at another online. It is likely that this type of behavior will give the other party a stronger case. If you believe your spouse is acting inappropriately, harassing you online, using social media platforms to influence your divorce and more, you do not have to suffer in silence.

Fighting for your ideal future

You should not have to go through the difficulty of online bullying, digital theft or any type of harassment during your divorce. If you are a victim, you have the right to speak out about what you are experiencing, bring issues before the court and pursue the ideal outcome to your case.

Your interests and post-divorce future are on the line during your divorce. If you believe your spouse is behaving in a way that could compromise the proceedings or trying to intimidate you, you will benefit from seeking guidance regarding your legal options for making this stop and fighting for the best possible outcome.
