Seal Rhode Island Divorce Records
Helping Celebrities and High-Profile Individuals
Much like high-net-worth individuals, celebrities and other high-profile people may wish to have their divorce records sealed from the public. Often times these records can have very sensitive information, including things such as a total net-worth, intellectual property ownership, and many other things that could be damaging if released to the public.
To learn more about having your divorce records sealed and get reputable counsel on pursuing this option, contact the skilled McIntyre Tate LLP. Our team of legal professionals have assisted numerous high-profile clients with every step of their divorce and have successfully petitioned to have the court records sealed in order to protect our clients’ privacy and well-being.
The Process for Sealing Divorce Records in Rhode Island
In order to have your 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 LLP, 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.
