By Anna E. Meddin, Esq.

If you are getting a divorce, you should assume that anything you post online can be found by your spouse and your spouse’s lawyer, even if the information is protected by a password and/or private. Here are six steps you can take to protect your private information:

1. Increase the security/privacy settings on all social networking sites

2. Change all of your passwords and security questions for your email and social media accounts

3. Consider creating a new email address for communicating with your family law lawyer

4. Be careful what you post on your Facebook page about your spouse and the entire divorce process

5. Monitor what other people post on your Facebook page about your current situation

6. When in doubt, call someone instead of emailing or sending a text message with sensitive information
