Plan to keep private affairs private in a divorce

On Behalf of | May 5, 2017 | Divorce, Firm News

A divorce is a very personal matter that you might not want made public. While people will know that the divorce occurred, you might not want your business out there about exactly what happened. You might be able to keep things under wraps if you opt to try to work out the divorce terms with your ex.

We know that you might not want to think about working with your ex like this. If this is what you are thinking, you need to take a few minutes to decide which is better — working with your ex or having your personal business made public.

By working with your ex to come up with the terms of the divorce, you can bypass the trial proceedings. This means that you won’t have to have a court record with your personal business. This could help you out if you have things that you’d rather keep private. Maybe the reason for the divorce is adultery and you don’t want your children to know the sordid details or maybe you are planning on running for public office and just don’t want the details to be made public.

We understand that you have some thinking to do. We can help to answer your questions and help you to understand the options that you have so that you can make an informed decision about what you are going to do. As difficult as this experience is, you can try to make it less stressful by preparing carefully for each step of the process before you have to deal with them.
