The following blog can help walk you through some of the most essential considerations you should make to protect your privacy during these challenging times.

What Can I Do to Keep My Divorce Private?

Fortunately, there are several things you can do to keep your divorce as private as possible. Some of them are as follows:

  • Opt for Mediation or Collaborative Divorce: These alternative dispute resolution methods are more private than traditional court proceedings. Mediation and collaborative divorce happen outside of the courtroom and are not part of the public record, offering a higher degree of confidentiality.
  • Limit the Use of Social Media: Be cautious about what you post on social media. Information shared online can easily become public and might be used against you in divorce proceedings.
  • Engage Discrete Professionals: Work with attorneys, financial advisors, and other professionals who understand the importance of discretion and are committed to maintaining your privacy.
  • Utilize Confidentiality Agreements: Both parties can sign a confidentiality agreement to restrict the sharing of information related to the divorce proceedings. This can include details about financial settlements, child custody arrangements, and personal disputes.
  • Secure Communications: Use secure methods of communication with your lawyer and others involved in your divorce. This includes encrypted emails, private meetings, and avoiding discussions in public spaces where you might be overheard.
  • Be Mindful of Financial Privacy: Be discreet about financial matters. This includes being cautious about sharing information regarding settlements, asset divisions, and alimony agreements.
  • Understand and Abide by Court Rules on Privacy: Be aware of the specific rules and procedures in New Jersey regarding privacy in family law cases. Your attorney can guide you in complying with these rules to ensure your privacy is maintained as much as possible.
