No, you never need to worry that unauthorized individuals will be able to access your divorce records in Brooklyn, either on the Internet or in person.
New York has strict privacy laws when it comes to matrimonial actions, so everything from the financial disclosures you make to private information about your children will remain private.
The only parties who can access the records are you, your former spouse, and the attorneys representing you.
Any documents that need to be retrieved must be ordered in person at the clerk’s office.
Divorce in New York is treated differently than it is in many states, and you can trust that your records won’t be visible to future romantic partners or a hiring manager who goes online to learn more about you after a job interview.
Whatever is said about you in the transcript will remain closed to the public.
If you have concerns about privacy in your divorce, the attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino can help make sure that everything that matters remains confidential.
