Court proceedings are normally placed on the public record, so the details of your divorce, including asset disclosures, misconduct during a marriage, and other potentially sensitive information could be free and accessible to the public when they become involved in your divorce. For some individuals, this could cause them to fall victim to other crimes, thanks to the exposed information. In these instances, you can petition the court to seal your divorce records.
In order to seal your records, you must present a valid case as to why your case should be sealed to the judge. A Jackson divorce attorney from Shows & Smith Law Firm, PLLC may be able to assist you in creating this petition. Our trustworthy and dependable advocacy has been relied upon by numerous clients throughout our decades’ worth of practice experience. We take the time to develop a personal relationship with each of our clients, providing them with individually-tailored counsel and representation in the courtroom.

Sealing your divorce record is not something a judge will frequently grant. Your attorney will be able to advise you as to whether or not your case qualifies to be sealed and assist you in pleading your case before the court to give you the best possible chance of a positive outcome.
Your petition must be narrowly-tailored. A broad request to seal your record will likely be denied by the judge. An attorney from our firm will be able to better advise you on creating a focused petition that will give you the best possible chance of acceptance.
