Request for anonymity denied in Weiner, Abedin divorce process

Divorce is often a trying time for many California residents. Many decisions will need to be made, and for those with high-profile lives, many personal details may soon become public knowledge. As a result, it is not unusual for individuals to want to keep their divorce process as private as possible. Unfortunately, that desire does not always get met.

Former out-of-state congressman Anthony Weiner and his soon-to-be ex-wife Huma Abedin had hoped that their divorce proceedings could move forward with some anonymity. However, due to the high-profile nature of the divorce -- which comes after it was discovered that Weiner had been sexting with a teenage girl -- the former couple's desire to have their case move forward as "Anonymous v. Anonymous" was not granted by the presiding judge. The desire for this listing reportedly came from concern for their 5-year-old son.

Though the desire was presented to the court, it appeared that an anonymous listing would not provide much benefit. During their recent court proceedings, numerous reporters were present in the courtroom. As a result, the judge did not feel that granting the special request was warranted.

Though most California residents may not want to go so far as to have a completely anonymous divorce process, they may still want their proceedings to go as smoothly as possible. Therefore, they may wish to gain information on their options and possible routes for allowing their cases to move forward as efficiently as possible. Consulting with their legal counsel may allow concerned individuals to better understand their options.
