Confidential Divorce

As a divorce attorney for 36 years, I can assure you that not many of us are able to keep the details behind our divorce confidential, protecting our personal lives. Johnny Depp may be one, but, if so, it’s only because of the special status his high profile Hollywood identity may afford him.  Not everyone is always so lucky. Michael Moore certainly wasn’t.

(Just the legal fees for preparing the request, researching the reasons to support it, updating the case law behind it, and arguing the motion, among other things, will be substantial.) And it’s unlikely, if he does, that the court will find the client’s “good reasons,” good reason enough. Yet

Unless the clients decide to choose the collaborative divorce process option. In that event, everything is confidential, sometimes even their finances. So consider whether it’s important to you and your spouse to keep your private life, and your children’s private lives, private. If it is, choose the collaborative process to keep your divorce confidential.
