Blogging Your Divorce…and any other case

The New York Times has an interesting story on a wrinkle in the blogging world: divorcing spouses who blog about their cases. This is something that we advise all clients to avoid, for two important reasons.

First, any statement that you make about your case, whether it’s a divorce case or any other, can be used against you in the litigation. No lawyer wants a client speaking outside the confines of the legal process.

Second, particularly in divorces, the public expression of hostility is not helpful in settling a case. Unless your desire is to make your divorce lawyer rich or to punish your soon to be ex even though it will cost you money, you will almost always be best served by saying as little as possible during the time before your divorce is granted.
