No, a divorce record isn’t public, and only your fiance, their former spouse, and the relevant attorneys will be able to access them.
New York prioritizes the privacy of your divorce record
The highly sensitive nature of the material they contain, which may include identifying information for young children, financial records for both parties, and assertions from either side of conduct that no one may be proud of.
Protecting this information not only keeps damaging material out of the hands of parties who have no business seeing it, but it also keeps unfounded allegations off of the internet, where it could be found by potential employers and others whose need to know doesn’t include details of a divorce.
If you have concerns about your fiance’s romantic history, it may be worthwhile to consider a prenuptial agreement before you marry.
With a pre-nup, you can negotiate the disposition of assets and wealth in the event that the marriage fails.
Going into a marriage with certainty that you’ll each be able to leave with your property and cash can give both of you confidence about your motives and intentions as you plan your future together.
The attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino can help you develop a balanced and enforceable prenuptial agreement to get your marriage started on the right foot.
