How to Protect Your Privacy During Divorce

When you are going through a divorce, the last thing you want to deal with is an invasion of privacy. Thankfully, there are ways to protect the private details of your divorce. Continue reading to learn the best route for you to avoid your privacy being invaded that is specific to your divorce process. Reach out to an experienced New Jersey divorce attorney today to schedule your initial consultation.

Protect Your Privacy During Divorce By Using Out of Court Methods

One of the first steps to consider when keeping your divorce quick and quiet is to use an out-of-court method. Settling your divorce through an alternative divorce method will help you to reach a settlement without court assistance. Some alternative divorce methods include collaborative divorce, arbitration, or mediation. Each of these methods is utilized to guide spouses through reaching an amicable decision. Once these important issues have been settled, you will still follow through with the formal filing process for your divorce paperwork. However, all of the privately agreed-upon terms made in your out-of-court method will be kept private and will not become public records.

Put Temporary Agreements in Place

It is possible to put temporary agreements into place before you and your spouse are ready to make a final decision before your divorce process begins. Examples of these temporary agreements include temporary custody arrangements or freezing access to marital assets. Any temporary agreements you and your spouse chose to put into place will not become public records. This is a helpful resolution for many couples to protect both spouses’ interests before the divorce process officially beings.

Use Your Prenuptial Agreement 

It is possible to include information in your prenuptial agreement that lays out how the couple will settle their divorce. This is typically put into place so that the couple’s privacy will not be violated and that they can settle quickly and quietly. You can also include in your prenup that neither party will speak out regarding the details of your marriage and divorce in the case of a divorce.

Consider Grounds for Divorce When Filing

When citing grounds for divorce, it is important to keep in mind that this information will be made public. To protect your privacy and avoid fault grounds for reasons such as abuse, adultery, abandonment, or habits of intoxication from becoming public knowledge, you may cite no-fault grounds instead. Claiming the divorce was caused by irreconcilable differences will protect your privacy.
