Any Inappropriate Paraphernalia Can Be Used Against You
Video Transcribed: Let’s talk about social media, guys. It’s the bane of our existence in the legal field. My name is Brian L. Jackson. I am an Oklahoma father’s rights attorney here with Dads.law where fathers are not disposable.
Today we’re going to talk about social media and some perils. I think the key thing to remember with social media is whatever you say there is on the record and it’s not coming down. So you want to be aware of what you’re posting. Some of the things I’ve seen happen can bite people in the ass. Be careful what you post about your case as a general rule. Don’t post anything that is liable to be used against you in some way. For example, paraphernalia. You are on screen using drugs, looking drunk, looking high. Your party photos are probably not a good thing to have up there.
Anything derogatory about the ex or anything at all that could be interpreted as a threat, don’t post it. And if you need to vent to somebody, don’t do it on your social media. Go find somebody, like a psychologist or a minister or priest. Because if you post it online, it’s there for the world to see, capture and use. And it’s on the record, and it will probably come up in court and bite you in the ass. And I’ve seen protective orders predicated on stuff people put on their own walls because to some extent, it depends on who your judge is. So the golden rule with social media is don’t be stupid and just don’t post stuff there that you wouldn’t want to go in on the record in court.
If you have any questions about that, then I would encourage you to talk with a Tulsa men’s attorney at Dads.Law where fathers are not disposable.
