The need for privacy in a high-profile divorce

No matter what your job or role in society, getting divorced can be messy business. If you happen to be a public figure of some sort, the messiness of a divorce can get even more complicated than if you were just the person next door. This applies to entertainers, artists, politicians, well-known entrepreneurs or executives and more. If you fall into any of these categories, you know how your reputation may be one of—if not the most—important asset that you need to protect.

Forbes explains how the failure to keep personal information out of the limelight can harm not only you but your career and your children if you have any. You may not say anything to your kids about the specifics of your divorce with their other parent but you are not likely to be able to prevent them from seeing your face all over the tabloids in the grocery store checkout line. Kids are also susceptible to comments from their peers at school or other activities who may get wind of gossip details.

Whether or not any information that is made public is true matters not. The damage can be done and irreparable.

When approaching a divorce, you will want to carefully choose your legal representation and any other advisors to ensure that you can trust them to keep information confidential.
