The Importance of Sealing Your Divorce Case

There are so many issues to address in a divorce that spouses might not realize the details of their divorce are a matter of public record. If you have concerns about your privacy, you will need a divorce attorney who knows how to protect these details, so they do not become publicly available. You do not have to be a public figure or a celebrity to have concerns about your privacy. Most of us would rather keep such personal and, in some cases, painful details private.

Protecting Your Privacy

What does it mean when the details of your divorce become part of public record? It means that, during divorce proceedings, anyone can attend and witness your case unfold in court. Additionally, a summary of your divorce case filings will become electronically available. Knowing that anyone can obtain information regarding your child custody order, for example, might make you feel uneasy or vulnerable. However, you do not have to accept this.

At Law Practice, Ltd., our divorce attorneys can file the proper documents with the court to seal your case. When the family court judge reviews these documents and signs the order to seal your divorce case, your privacy will be protected. After your case is successfully sealed, only you, your spouse, and your respective attorneys will have access to the court filings. Anyone else, such as your friends, employers, co-workers, or family members, will not have access to these documents.

With your divorce case sealed, you can rest a little easier knowing that the details of your split will remain between private.
