The Process for Sealing Divorce Records
In order to have your divorce records sealed, you must petition the court and provide a “good cause” in order for the court to grant this wish. Being a celebrity or well-known individual is not usually considered a good-enough reason.
- At McIntyre Tate, we can assist you with petitioning the court for the following record-privacy solutions:
- Full-sealing order
- Partial-sealing order
- Anonymous appearance
If the court does not deem it prudent to fully seal your records, the judge can award you a partial-sealing (in which the proceedings are still listed but your name is removed), or allow your case to appear anonymous (so the names of the plaintiff and defendant do not appear anywhere in the records). There is no legal precedent for this, and the awards are given on a case-by-case basis.
