3 ways to preserve privacy in a high-asset divorce

If you are getting ready to file for divorce in Atlanta, you may want to work on preserving your privacy. You see and hear about nasty divorce battles where one or both parties say cruel things about each other and air their private business in the process. The things you say and the way you act during a divorce can compromise your negotiating power, outcome and privacy.

It is not impossible to keep your personal and financial information private during a divorce. With the following suggestions and the big picture in mind, you can better maintain your privacy in a high-value divorce.

Start with mediation

Divorce does not always have to end in litigation. Many high-asset couples find it easier to end their relationships outside of court with mediation. To benefit from mediation, both parties should have similar earning and divorce goals and be willing to listen and negotiate with each other amicably. If talks break down during negotiations, litigation may be a more feasible high-asset divorce solution.

Avoid social media

Social media makes it possible for people to communicate and share with others all over the world. The way you and your spouse act on social media can affect your settlement. Many people use their profiles to vent their feelings and frustrations. Though it is advisable for couples to refrain from social media until their separations are final, many divorcees include clauses to restrict what partners post about divorce online.

File a motion to seal divorce records

Sometimes divorce brings about safety concerns. If there are valid concerns about the safety and well-being of yourself, your kids or your privacy, the courts may intervene and seal the divorce records. The sealing of divorce records is up to the judge’s discretion and is not applicable to all situations.

Just because you and your partner are high-income earner does not mean you have to end up in court where anyone can access public information about your divorce.
