– from Kevin T. in Delafield, WI
My wife and I have been married for nearly two decades. Within a few years of marriage we knew the marriage was bad, and we both started having affairs. Last year we finally decided to get a divorce. The proceedings were nasty and ugly. Fortunately we finally settled our case. This, however, did not happen until all the dirt about our affairs was spread all over the courthouse and all over town.
Additionally what also came out during the proceedings , was our private financial issues. All these documents and records are included in the various court filings.
The only thing we finally agreed on is our want to get the records of our divorce case sealed. This process seems however to be very difficult. Why is it two adults cannot agree to make their dirt and finances off-limits to public record?
