Transparency in family law cases can lead to sheer embarrassment, Toronto-area family law lawyer Andrew Feldstein recently told the Toronto StarRead Toronto Star

Feldstein, managing partner with Feldstein Family Law Group, was reacting to the question of whether openness in Canada’s court system should extend to the identities of individuals involved in family law cases.

“It’s a very frustrating feeling if your spouse is going to make all sorts of horrendous allegations against you and there’s nothing that you can do to stop it,” Feldstein says in the Star. “The court file is open to the public and anyone can come and read the allegations that their spouse has made about them.”

In the article, Feldstein also notes that divorce decisions often include financial information and he suggests it’s only a matter of time before that’s used in identity thefts.
