Can I avoid media coverage of my divorce?

When you or your spouse is a high-profile person, it can make the divorce process even more difficult. You may have to be concerned with more than just the divorce. The media often wants to get involved and report on everything they can find. This can cause tension and stress on top of what you are already experiencing.

According to Vanity Fair, there are some tricks you can use that celebrities use to help avoid the media coverage. One of the best options is to get your divorced settled before you ever formally file. This allows you to handle all the details before anyone can even know you are going to get divorced.

If you are trying to keep things quiet, you should be careful about being seen with your attorney or going to your attorney's office. This can signal to the media that something is going on. Try talking over the phone or meeting at a neutral location. You also should avoid being photographed on dates or doing anything that would draw attention to you.

Once you do file, you may want to see about filing in a different office than you would normally use. You may also be able to get your file sealed, but that is hard to do. The judge needs a compelling reason to do so. Once last trick is to file at a time when there is a lot of other news. This will help push you to a lower priority.
