Family Law for Athletes and Entertainers: Keeping Your Divorce Private

Keep the Spotlight on Your Career, Not Your Divorce

Divorce is rarely simple. Feelings get hurt; tempers flare; and, spouses make accusations. When your career keeps you in the public eye, accusations – both true and false – can become front page news. This can hurt your professional reputation, your career, and your family. If you or your spouse has a high profile career, you need an attorney who will protect your personal and financial interests while maintaining your privacy.

We Protect Your Privacy

Pennsylvania considers public access to judicial records and proceedings to be a right protected by the First Amendment and Sixth Amendment. Under Pennsylvania law, court records and family law proceedings are generally made available to the public. However, it is still possible to protect your privacy. Court records can be sealed if an attorney can show that making the records public will result in irreparable physical or financial harm. Our Philadelphia divorce attorneys will also take steps to safeguard any financial or personal information that is disclosed to your spouse’s attorney.
