Are you concerned about sealing divorce records to protect your privacy? How do you keep your private business and information out of the public record.
Generally speaking, Court proceedings in Carlsbad Family Law Court and across the State of California are a matter of public record. Any legal filings submitted in your divorce case will be open for the public and easy for anyone to read. Specific information about paternity, a child or victim’s identity, or sexual abuse will be omitted.
Ask the Certified Family Law Specialists at Burke & Domercq about sealing divorce records to protect your privacy and personal business. When the Court files a divorce case under seal, your case and all information concerning you, your finances, your family and your personal business are not available to the public. The Court may order a portion of the record or your entire case to be sealed.
You would think personal information such as identifying information, financial data and personal matters would be at least redacted. This is simply not the case. Our attorneys often make a motion to seal part or all of the records for our clients. We must provide a substantial brief which addresses the information we wish to be sealed, why the private interests of our client is more important than the interests of the public, and the damage which could be done by revealing your personal and private information.
Sealing divorce records to protect your privacy is common in cases which involve:
- The ownership of a business or professional practice
- Domestic violence
- Protecting the identity and identification of children
- Protecting confidential data such as bank account numbers, social security numbers, financial accounts and balances, etc.
