Technology And Divorce: The Pros And Cons

technology and divorceHuffington Post recently took a look at the advantages of technology in divorce, and while we have to give a hearty “here-here!” to many of the points, it’s also important to take a look at the downside. While it can certainly help you with support sources and the like, it can also exacerbate difficulties. Let’s take a look at some of the pros and cons of mixing these two elements together.


Do-it-yourself divorce: This is perhaps one of the biggest advantages of having a technological influence in your divorce and recovery. Rather than paying exorbitant attorney’s fees for a costly, combative divorce, you and your spouse can use DIY divorce services like ours to get the support, education, and preparation you need at fractional costs.

Getting back out there: Technology can enable you to become more discerning about the dating scene after you or your spouse have decided to file for divorce. Rather than taking someone at face value from one night in a club, you can read their profile and use your judgment to determine whether they’re a good fit for you. It can also help you get your confidence back by giving you more time and opportunity to interact in a meaningful way.

Support groups: There are tons of support forums out there where you can go to interact with others, who may be going through the same thing you are. You can also use the Internet or specialty smartphone applications to get legal guidance in an easy-to-digest form.


Social media: People have a tendency to vent on social media, and that can lead to big trouble if you say the wrong thing. Social networks like Facebook better facilitate affairs, hurt divorce settlements, and escalate feuds by bringing others into what should be a private situation. Also, if you’re the spouse who has been rejected, having access to this tool can escalate obsessive behavior by using it to always check what your ex is up to. This can retard post-divorce growth and development.

Disconnecting relationships: In situations where technology becomes too big of a part in a couple’s life, they can tend to ignore the human need to connect. Not spending time together in a meaningful way can increase the divide that couples feel and lead to divorce.

In Summary

While ultimately technology is a good thing in how it can help you save money and time on a divorce, rebuild your life after one, and get the emotional and legal support that you need, it can’t be fully embraced without being aware of its costs. Find the balance, and you’ll be a happier person.
