Business owners do not want to air information related to their businesses in open court. With litigation, the court pleadings are a matter of public record.
However, there is a smarter way for business owners to handle their divorce. Collaborative divorce is a process that keeps the parties out of court. While both sides disclose all pertinent financial information, the exchange of information and what is discussed in the collaborative process remains confidential. Collaborative law provides an opportunity to keep the information related to a business private while at the same time allowing the parties to proceed to a resolution of their matrimonial issues in an expedient and cost-effective manner.
