Can I Stop My Ex From Posting Pictures Of Our Kids Online?

online picturesQuestion:

Does my ex-wife have the right to post pictures of our daughter online without my permission when she has full custody?


I am not licensed to practice law in your state. Therefore, I cannot inform you as to the specific laws of your state and can only provide you with general information concerning child custody.

This issue raises some questions: 1. Is this addressed in the decree of divorce? 2. What kind of pictures?

If this issue is covered by any provision of the decree of divorce, you need to read what it says and follow it.

Secondly, I think you have to look at what kind of pictures are being posted and how old the child is. You don’t mention that there are issues of whether or not the pictures are appropriate or whether the child is appropriately dressed, so I assume they are just pictures in general.

If they are just pictures – because Mom wants to brag about how beautiful her child is, I don’t believe the court would put a stop to it in most circumstances. Especially since your ex-wife has full custody and the court saw fit to give her full custody, they are not likely to now tell her what she can and cannot do. (Unless the child is in danger.)

Remember, I am unable to provide you with anything more than general parent-time tips, so please consult a domestic litigation attorney in your area to obtain specific advice as to the laws in your state and how they impact your circumstances.
