Maintaining Privacy During Dissolution Proceedings – It Can Be Done!

Question:  I am in the process of getting a dissolution and I am concerned about how much personal information I have to disclose.  I know that all of the dissolution pleadings will become public record and anyone can view them.  Is it possible to get a dissolution without having to disclose all of my personal information?  I just can’t stand the idea of friends, co-workers and potential employers knowing the details of my financial life!

That is a great question.  In Columbus, Ohio the process of filing for a dissolution requires the disclosure of a vast wealth of highly personal financial information.  Every debt and every asset must be disclosed in required affidavits and ultimately becomes part of the public record.  This means that anyone can go to the courthouse and find out the details of every asset and debt that you have.

Protecting Your Financial & Personal Information Is Possible

If you are concerned about your privacy, Friedman Law Offices offers the Dissolution Privacy Package.  The Dissolution Privacy Package will ensure that your nosey neighbors, or maybe someone much more sinister, will not be able to access to your private information by viewing your dissolution pleadings.
