Atlanta High Profile Divorce Lawyers
Divorce is complex enough when it only involves two private spouses. However, if a high-profile person or couple is going through divorce, the legal stakes are even higher. High-profile divorce cases combine the stress of divorce with the constant act of trying to hide your family and your personal issues. A discreet divorce attorney from Bushnell & Drye, LLC will be able to help you finalize your divorce with minimum time in the public eye.
Complicating Factors of a High Profile Divorce
While part of your divorce proceedings are kept private under Georgia state and federal law, this does not mean all of your divorce will be kept private. Any conversations with an attorney will be kept confidential, as well as any discussion with medical professionals and mediators. However, other discussion that come up during the divorce proceedings are not inherently private. This means that the public may be able to gain private knowledge you don’t want them to have.
A confidentiality agreement is an integral part of the Georgia high profile divorce.. A confidentiality agreement will ensure that none of the parties involved will use the information against each other, by legally prohibiting the parties from sharing the information outside of the divorce process. This agreement will keep any accountants, financial professionals, or other professionals you may consult with during your divorce from sharing any information with the public.
Divorce Confidentiality Agreement
If a couple is going through a high-profile divorce or a divorce involving sensitive information, a confidentiality agreement is invaluable to the involved parties. Sensitive information, such as business investments and personal issues involving marital misbehavior, can be protected by a confidentiality agreement. However, if a spouse files for a fault-based divorce in Georgia, the grounds stated for fault will not be kept confidential by a confidentiality agreement, as the fault becomes part of the public court record. The court may be able to work with you to protect this sensitive information in other ways, and an experienced attorney from Bushnell & Drye, LLC, will be able to work with you and the court to make sure your sensitive information is protected through a confidentiality agreement or other avenues.
A confidentiality agreement may also be required to help protect information gathered or agreements created before the marriage occurs or after the divorce is finalized. This means that if the spouses have a prenuptial agreement, they may need a confidentiality agreement to protect the information contained in it and any information contained in the divorce decree. These agreements can also protect any negotiations, discussions, business valuations or evidence that flows through the divorce process, pre-nuptial agreements, and post-nuptial agreement.
