When working through a divorce, no one wants the details of their private
lives revealed and in cases of high net worth, maintaining privacy can
be especially challenging. Couples are often active members within their
community and private details which surface during a divorce have the
potential to irrevocably damage personal and business relationships. At
the Law Office of Steven N. Cole, LLC, we understand the importance of
maintaining confidentially and there are several steps which spouses can
take in order to preserve as much of their privacy as possible.
When concerns regarding confidentially are at the forefront of a divorce,
it can be in the best interests of all parties to handle proceedings as
quickly and quietly as possible. Many divorcing couples can harbor feelings
such as anger and distrust which make cooperation difficult, but an amenable
solution such as mediation can keep your private life out of the courtroom.
All proceedings which take place in mediation are private and must legally
be kept confidential. Securing the services of a skillful mediator will
also be more cost-effective and time efficient than when cases go to trial.
While a lawyer can help to protect your privacy during legal processes,
there are steps individuals can take to protect privacy at home. Assume
that once a piece of information has been shared, it is a matter of public
record. This is especially true in online communities where interested
parties are likely to save past records. If a case goes to trial, private
digital records may also be subject to scrutiny. Online data such as emails,
may be revealed in court by order of a judge and used against you. Information,
once shared, tends to circulate quickly and you must take extra care when
divulging personal information in social and online communities.
