Anything you tell any member of the Rice Divorce Law office is strictly confidential and will not be disclosed outside our office without your permission. However, we will not allow you to lie under oath nor allow you to plan to commit a crime. If someone outside of you or our office overhears or reads communications, the privilege is lost as to those communications.
If you communicate with us by a method that allows access to that communication, you may well have lost the privileged nature of the communication. Most big companies have a policy employees sign that allows the company to read any email that comes over the company server. That means your privilege may well be waived on the email you receive at work. Your computer keeps “temporary internet files.” These can be accessed by anyone who has access to the computer on which you received the email with an attachment. This might be a great time to get a new computer or tablet to use for communicating with our office. At the very least, change your passwords. If you email us, do not leave a copy of the email on your computer so others can read it. Remember that merely hitting the delete key will not delete the email. Intercepting another person’s wire communication is a serious crime.
All papers filed in your case and all testimony in your case are theoretically matters of public record, and the public has a right to see or hear it. However, the only people you are likely to see at court are the other people who are getting divorced themselves that day, and they are far more concerned with their own problems than with your case.
