When you get a divorce for adultery, will the adultery information become public information?
If I say I cheated, just to get out of it now, will the records indicate the I was the one that cheated? I reside in Maryland and know the rules vary by state. So when you respond let me know what state you are in. Thanks.
Unless the judge seals a record, all records are public, including your divorce papers. In Maryland, adultery is a grounds for divorce, but if your spouse forgives you for the adultery, then the adultery is no longer grounds for divorce. Most divorce are a “no-contest” divorce, but to get a no-contest divorce in Maryland, you need to live apart for a year without any sexual activities with your spouse during that time.
