Provide grounds for divorce.

While most divorces in Rhode Island are “no fault,” the state does allow some grounds for a fault divorce such as adultery. If one spouse finds evidence that could lead to a fault divorce (such as an active dating profile or conversations with a love interest), the at-fault spouse may be ordered to pay more in the settlement.

Even if your social media accounts have strict privacy controls, a friend or mutual connection could see your posts and forward the information to your ex. In most cases, it is best to deactivate your social media account until your divorce is final, or delete the account altogether.
