In this episode of the Modern Divorce Podcast, host Billie Tarascio digs into the world of family law for professional athletes, who have to closely guard their privacy and money matters during the legal process. She is joined by an expert in the field, family law attorney Rich Harris and founder of the Harris Law Firm in Colorado, who has built a unique system to protect his high-flying clients, emphasizing confidentiality and discretion as paramount concerns.

So how can an average person keep his or her money and marriage details private in a legal world that makes things public information?

The episode explores the ways it’s possible to manage public profiles and high-income levels during divorce or paternity cases. Harris details his processes, including a separate entry process and use of pseudonyms, to maintain utmost privacy even within his office. He also discusses the potential complexities in child support and asset division for athletes and high income earners, noting the importance of tailored strategies that consider fluctuating incomes and career longevity.

Pre and postnuptial agreements are underscored as crucial tools, with Harris advising proactive legal steps to establish paternity and parental rights. The impact of social media on family law disputes is also a focal point, where Harris advocates for cautious online behavior given the potential for posts to be used as evidence.

The takeaways for those of us who don’t have multi-million sports contracts are how to apply privacy controls over what can become public fodder in social media and through public information sources.
