Home 5 Divorce Advice 5 What You Need To Know About “Sharenting”

In the age of digital parenting, the practice of “sharenting” has become common.

But what are the legal implications for divorcing couples?

Well firstly, sharenting involves sharing your child’s photos and milestones on social media. While it seems harmless, it’s important to understand the impact this can have when divorcing.

Here’s what you need to know:

▶️ Privacy and consent are key concerns. Children can’t provide consent to their information being shared online, potentially leading to family law disputes over custody and visitation.

▶️ Best practices include obtaining consent, being cautious with content, and respecting court orders. These steps can safeguard your child’s welfare while preserving your online presence as a parent.

▶️ ️Mediation is an effective way to resolve disputes surrounding sharenting.  It encourages open communication between parents, helping them reach a consensus. This ultimately can lead to shared agreements, respect for privacy, and a better online environment for your child.

Don’t let sharenting complexities become a stumbling block.  If you have any questions or wish to explore this further, please reach out to me.
