No, you cannot access the records of your divorce in Queens online.
You’ll actually have to visit the county clerk’s office if you need copies of documents or other material.
This may seem like a giant hassle in our wired world, but there’s a very good reason for that layer of privacy to be in place.
Under New York law, divorce records are private, which means that the only people who have the legal right to access them are you, your former spouse, and the designated attorneys for each party.
While it can make getting copies frustrating, it’s actually a huge benefit to you.
Consider the financial disclosures you had to make as part of your divorce, or any allegations that may have been made against you in the proceedings.
If the records were available online, it might be possible for a new romantic partner, or even a potential new boss to call them up and read them.
If you’re having trouble accessing divorce records that you need, the attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino can help.
Whether you’re seeking clarification, a modification of terms, or simply want the file on hand for recordkeeping purposes, call us today at 718-523-1111 for a free consultation with an experienced Queens divorce attorney.
