ARE DIVORCE RECORDS PUBLIC?

John Schmidt June 16, 2022

In Kentucky family law, adoptions, paternity, and juvenile cases including Child Protective Services (aka CPS) are confidential in nature and require a Court order to view. In some circumstances, cases can be sealed but it is discouraged and not likely to happen without compelling justification and privacy or embarrasment are not unlikely to merit a favorable Court order for the entire case although the Court may seal certain documents, images, recordings, or communications if appropriate in the Court's opinion.
