Chicagoland Area Attorneys Handling High Profile Divorces With Discretion
At Botti Marinaccio, LTD., we know that any divorce can be extremely challenging. There are many complex concerns to address, and the associated emotions can be overwhelming. When a divorce involves a high-profile individual or couple, things can quickly become even more complicated. A high-profile divorce combines the usual stresses of ending a marriage with the challenges of being in the public eye. With these factors in mind, it is especially important to have a divorce attorney on your side who has decades of experience successfully navigating divorce and parenting issues for an elite clientele. The lawyers at Botti Marinaccio, LTD. understand your need for privacy and discretion throughout your divorce process.
Complexities Of A High-Profile Divorce In Illinois
Do I have a right to keep my personal and business information private?
Under Illinois and federal law, some elements of your divorce proceedings must be kept confidential. For example, any conversations you have with your chosen attorney are private, as are any records or notes of consultations with medical or mental health professionals. Mediation sessions are also confidential, but other discussions and negotiations are not automatically kept private. The lawyers at Botti Marinaccio, LTD. are experienced in handling high-profile cases. They use skill and discretion to keep your business and personal matters private.
If you or your spouse are well-known personalities, whether on a local, state, or national level, Botti Marinaccio, LTD. may suggest a confidentiality agreement as you begin your divorce proceedings. A confidentiality agreement can help you protect your conversations with business valuation experts, accountants, and other professionals who might be assisting with your divorce. The agreement can also keep your family, friends, and employees from sharing details of your divorce with the media or any other parties.
Protecting Your Rights And Your Dignity
While confidentiality agreements can be helpful in keeping certain details of your divorce private, there are other ways in which an experienced high-profile divorce lawyer can assist you in protecting your rights. The attorneys at Botti Marinaccio, LTD. realize that privacy protections can also be issued by the court in the form of limiting required filings and keeping cameras out of the courtroom during the proceedings. We can even help you petition the court to seal your divorce records, depending on the circumstances of your case.
Divorce Lawyers Equipped To Handle Significant Wealth And Complex Assets
High-profile individuals commonly have complex business or real estate holdings and significant assets to equitably divide. Determining how assets will be distributed often requires assistance from outside experts. It may be necessary to involve business valuators, real estate appraisers, and other financial professionals. You might also wish to consult with psychologists, child development specialists, and other mental health professionals to ensure that you and your children have support to reduce stress and find healing both now and in the future.
