Divorcing yourself from the public eye

On Behalf of | Oct 9, 2019 | Divorce

Divorce may be one of the hardest things you’ll ever have to endure. Having it happen for all to see can make it even more painful.

During a divorce, your private business could be available for everyone to see. Such information may be highly personal and could damage your reputation or career. There are ways to prevent such information from being seen by employers, neighbors and friends.

Privacy matters

While divorce proceedings in Texas are public, there are ways to keep everyone in Collin County from following your case:

  • Collaborative divorce: This procedure happens mostly outside of court. Sessions look to resolve your divorce amicably while maintaining privacy. You then submit your final agreement to the court without the details that got you there.
  • Confidentiality order: If you’re worried about specific details coming out in court, such as an affair or private medical records, a confidentiality order may be your best option. Put harmful testimony and anything that relates under lock and key with a prior agreement or allowance from the court.

Classified closure

Moving on from divorce can be difficult. But keeping your private life from the world can make it easier to leave the process behind you. Look into your options for privacy to help protect you, your family and your future from the public spotlight.
