Social media clauses, pre- and postnuptial agreements

For those Pennsylvania couples who are about to tie the knot, there is a lot to think about. Not only is there often a wedding to plan, but there are many logistics involved in marriage that can be easily overlooked. Sometimes, it helps to take a number of pragmatic steps in order to ensure that everything proceeds in a way that is in line with a couple's wishes. For many, this means signing a prenuptial agreement.

A prenuptial agreement can contain many clauses that determine beforehand certain components of divorce will play out, components like property division, child custody and the like. For those couples who are already married, it is often possible to sign a postnuptial agreement and accomplish these same goals. Although almost no couple goes into a marriage expecting to later divorce, both pre- and postnuptial agreements can be pragmatic measures.

With the popularity of social media in the modern age, there is much about daily life that has changed. The same goes with marriage and divorce. Recently, it has become more and more popular to add a social media clause to a pre- or postnuptial agreement. This can prevent a spouse from sharing personal text messages, emails and the like publically in the event of divorce. The clause can lay out what can and cannot be shared on social media. This can include what can be posted about a child, as well as anything that a spouse may want to keep private.

In divorce, there are many changes that can affect how the proceedings play out. It can be immensely helpful to consult with an attorney whose knowledge of such matters is current.
