You are in the middle of the divorce process and get charged with a crime. It could be DUI, assault or something else, but it is your first criminal charge.
One of your concerns may be whether you need to tell your soon-to-be ex-spouse. After all, you should be innocent until proven guilty, right? There is no right answer to the question of whether to tell your spouse, so always follow the advice of your attorney. You may have the same person representing you for your divorce and criminal charge, or your counsel may be separate people. The recommendations may differ depending on the situation.
Criminal records are public information and it is likely that your ex will find out eventually. If you withhold the information and it is pertinent to your divorce/custody case, the family court judge may look unfavorably on you in the future for not fully disclosing the facts during litigation. However, these decisions must be made on a case-by-case basis and you should always speak with your legal counsel before disclosing the charges to other parties, including your ex-spouse.
