Confidentiality in Divorce

In the course of a divorce most people do not think about the consequences of keeping the terms of that divorce, including the property settlement, confidential. There are many reasons for this, but in most cases the thought process is fogged with the emotional stress that occurs when people go through a divorce. It is important to think of the potential consequences that may arise if some of the aspects of divorce are made public which they will be without some attention to this matter.

In this day and time security for ones possessions and time with family are certainly an issue that demands attention. Just how disturbing can the potential publication of the fact that this party got the art work or this party got what ever after a public divorce. All aspects of a divorce are public record. You are literally hanging your dirty laundry out for the world to see when attention is not paid to keeping confidential aspects of a divorce.

Mediation allows a level of confidentiality that cannot be found in a court room, or a trial. In mediation not only will you be a party to crafting an agreement but you will have the ability to keep the agreement, in most cases confidential. Call us today to discuss how you can keep your divorce proceedings confidential and how that may or may not affect you. You might ask yourself, just why does it matter that the world will know the details of my divorce. When someone goes through a litigated divorce, the world can and will see “all of the dirty laundry hanging on your line.” Knowing this should make you ask yourself just what was the problem in the recent divorce that Tom Cruise went through. In other words, you did not see any of the details of his divorce with Katie Holmes.

High Profile Divorces

How is it that athletes, actors, politicians and other high profile individuals actually go through a divorce and you never hear more than speculation about the issues of the divorce. What do these people know that is not available to the average person when they go through a divorce.

The answer to most of these situations is the manner in which the divorce is handled as well as where the divorce is handled. Having seen the detrimental, damaging, and painful results of some terms of divorce being public information, we recommend that individuals do everything in their power to maintain confidentiality in any divorce proceedings. Taking time to keep things confidential will pay dividends in the lives of both parties. You never know when the results of a divorce will come back to bite later in life. If you do not take time to arrange a confidential divorce you may be sorry later in life. Politicians, athletes, and many professionals have had adverse decisions made affecting their life many years after a divorce. While society is growing more accepting of a divorce, there still can be problems ahead just by having the wrong person dig into court records (open to the public).

Actually, in most cases it is less expensive to handle divorce matters in a confidential manner. Let us show you how to keep your divorce private, and out of reach of those that might hurt you with adverse information in the years to come.
