Divorce issues: More prenups addressing social media usage

More and more couples in Texas and all around the country are having discussions before they get married about how to handle things should they split sometime in the future. Prenuptial agreements have long been helpful in divorce proceedings when it comes to issues of property division. However, many soon-to-wed couples are now addressing social media usage in their prenups.

Experts cite the current widespread usage of social media among most adults as a contributing factor to the trend. It is common for some people to be very open on their social media accounts. Therefore, if someone was in the midst of divorce proceedings and was angry at a partner, he or she may use various social media platforms to air grievances or post photographs that were intended to be private. Social media clauses in a prenuptial agreement can prevent possible embarrassment or potential damage to a person's reputation.

Legal advisors anticipate that these types of clauses will be included in marital agreements more frequently in the future. They can specify what types of photos can be posted or what sort of information can be shared. The clauses can also address who can access any joint accounts.

Creating prenuptial agreements may not be considered a romantic activity for couples prior to their weddings. However, the existence of such an agreement can prevent much conflict and contention in the future if a divorce happens down the road. A Texas divorce attorney can assist in the development of a prenup that will thoroughly address a person's specific situation. If a couple is already married, an experienced lawyer can also help clients with preparing a post-nuptial agreement.
