Divorce as a Public Figure – February 4, 2019

Divorce is an emotionally and financially stressful process, and if you’re in the public eye, it can be even more so.

When you’re a public figure, talk to a competent divorce lawyer. It would behoove both parties to be as discreet about the divorce process as you can be.

Here are just a few things to consider as a public figure:

  • Do not discuss your divorce on social media. Sooner or later, reporters will get wind and will start digging for “dirt” and material that will sell copies of their publication.
  • Do not discuss the details of your divorce with casual acquaintances. Only relay the facts to individuals on a “need to know basis,” which is limited to a very small pool of individuals.
  • Beware of discussing your divorce in public places where others can hear the conversation.
  • Do not badmouth your spouse or their divorce attorney, especially on social media.
  • Do not go on the record about your divorce without speaking to a divorce lawyer first.
