Protecting Privacy in Divorce may be a Concern for many Families

On behalf of The Law Offices of Cindy D. Sackrin posted in Divorce on Tuesday, December 23, 2014.

Last week, this blog discussed a messy child custody battle between a famous rocker and his estranged wife. Although the lives of celebrities may often seem out-of-touch or not relevant to the lives of others, the reality is that when it comes to family law, celebrities often struggle with the same sensitive issues everyone does. One significant concern during the divorce process for many families can be privacy and the need to protect children and other important concerns.

Couples that are able to reach agreements in place of heated, and sometimes ugly, disputes that require court intervention or trial, may also be able to preserve a measure of privacy concerning financial and other matters that may not otherwise remain private following the court process. Reaching agreements may also allow parties to avoid costly delays.

Protecting privacy and protecting children during the divorce process is likely both a concern and aspiration for most families. Precise privacy concerns and protections may varying by the jurisdiction where the divorce takes place which is why spouses will likely want to be familiar with the process where they are filing for divorce. Although the lives and divorces of high-profile celebrities and others may not always seem relevant to others, all parties entering the family law process and divorce process face privacy concerns and other important, and often emotional, concerns related to property division, the division of assets, alimony, child support and child custody.

Because of the variety of significant concerns involved in the divorce process, it can be helpful for couples entering the process to be familiar with it and to also understand how to protect important concerns. Knowledge of the family law process and how it works to help families, and protect important interests and sensitive concerns, may help with anxiety that can sometimes be associated with the divorce process.
