Dear Parent Split up from Other Parent and Going through or about to go through a legal process regarding your child or children together . . . . . .
It does not do you any good to bad mouth the other parent on Facebook and/or other social media. Not only does it get back to and make the other parent upset and angry with you and unwilling to settle, thus dragging on the Court proceedings longer and possibly ensuring a contested hearing--but in that hearing all your trash-talking can be entered into evidence as exhibits, and the Judge can see what a loveable, likeable person you areN'T. Further, if the other parent accuses you of like the booze or the weed a bit too much, or of being a hothead in need of anger management, your posts might support that accusation.
In short, be careful what you write. Maybe you feel like you've had a nice release or catharsis and got it out of your system typing those posts, but you're just hurting yourself as well as likely annoying those who stumble across that stuff in their feed [And I'm just speaking to those parents with custody/kid issues going on in Court and am all about free speech to everyone else].
