Keeping Your Divorce Private When You Are in the Public Eye

| |

While your career may be newsworthy, your private life should remain private. However, when a professional athlete, entertainer, CEO, or politician gets divorced, there is the potential that the divorce will become front page news. Although some believe there is no such thing as bad publicity, the details of your divorce can harm your personal life, your reputation, and your career.

When couples divorce, the conflict between them can escalate. Spouses get caught up in their emotions and need for revenge. They may make accusations. Private aspects of a relationship may quickly become public knowledge.

Your fans are interested in your personal life, but they aren’t the only ones who will learn the specifics of your marriage and divorce. Your children, parents, and other family members may be exposed to information that you would rather not share.

Protecting your privacy is essential to your family and your reputation. These strategies can help you maintain privacy during your divorce.

  1. Plan ahead with prenuptial and postnuptial agreements.
  2. Talk to your spouse ahead of time about what you can expect in the event of divorce.
  3. Consult an attorney with experience handling high profile divorce cases in a discrete manner.
  4. Ask your divorce attorney to require a confidentiality agreement before releasing information to your spouse or to your spouse’s attorney.
  5. Consider mediation or collaborative divorce. Working outside the court can prevent the details of your divorce from becoming a matter of public record.
  6. If you must go to court, consider ways to minimize the time your case spends within the court system.
  7. Since child-related issues are the most contentious and heavily litigated areas of a divorce case, try to resolve child custody and support before dealing with other issues.
  8. Hire experts to simplify the process of information gathering and sharing. This can reduce the amount of time spent on litigation.

My marriage life has been a hell for me for the past four years until I decided to put an end to what has to be ended. Choosing a lawyer was another additional stressful part of the long process. I’m so glad that I’ve found the right one for me at Petrelli Previtera. Life isn’t always fair, but at least having her in my corner, felt even better. I couldn’t recommend her highly enough!
