Why You Should Consider Signing a Confidentiality Agreement in an Illinois Divorce

By Nottage and Ward on July 13, 2011

A confidentiality agreement, or confidentiality protective order, outlines specific confidential information that both parties share with one another for purposes of their divorce litigation, but want to keep from public view or access. Under such an agreement or order, the parties agree that the information covered by the agreement will not be disclosed. These agreements may restrict both parties from using the information, or they may restrict only one party’s use of the information.

In most cases, these agreements are typically entered into for business purposes, but in some situations, a couple may sign a confidentiality agreement in Illinois. For example, signing such an agreement may be desirable if one spouse was in the public eye or if the couple ran a business together.

Typically, information covered in a confidentiality agreement includes the following:

  • Business practices and financials
  • Certain incidents that took place during the duration of the marriage
  • Details regarding the divorce settlement or information about other arrangements
  • Intimate details regarding a spouse’s habits or behavior
  • Research, development, inventions, or products of a spouse or both parties

Whatever your reason is behind why you need a confidentiality agreement in Illinois, such an agreement can help protect you while you focus on navigating through your divorce. The Chicago divorce attorneys at Nottage and Ward can help you throughout the divorce process as well as advise you regarding any contract issues that may arise.
