Reality TV star Kim Kardashian's divorce from Brooklyn Nets forward Kris Humphries took 536 days to finalize, garnering significant attention as the case dragged on. The couple had been married for just 72 days when they decided to call it quits. The reality TV star has been known to make her feelings public with details leaking out on social networks such as Twitter and Facebook. However, this may be a mistake according to a recent report in the Huffington Post.

Increasingly, divorce attorneys carefully check out tweets, Facebook updates and other online postings from a divorcing or divorced spouse to gather ammunition for their clients. California is a no fault divorce state so your divorce itself be put in danger. However, child custody, alimony and visitation rights can all be put in jeopardy based on what you publish on social networks.

Following these simple hints can ensure that you do not provide your spouse's attorney with information that could prevent you from gaining your rightful due.

1. Do not friend your ex-spouse or anyone who may share info with him/her.
2. Refrain from posting photos showing partying activity, consumption of alcoholic beverages and the like.
3. Do not identify your location when you tweet or post on Facebook.
4. Keep your opinions to yourself regarding your ex-spouse's activities, the details of your divorce and other
personal information.
5.Refrain from bragging about new purchases, vacations, etc.
6.Do not identify new relationships on your social networks.

If you are currently undergoing a divorce, or have been less than amicably divorced in the past, and your spouse contesting child custody or alimony arrangements, it is vital that you work with a qualified family attorney to protect your rights. Your attorney can advise you on what you can and cannot publish on social networks to ensure that you don't run into problems later on.
