Protecting of your privacy in a Rape or Abuse Case

If you are interested in pursuing legal action as a result of childhood sexual abuse, but you have concerns about the protection of your privacy and you don’t want your name out in the public, in most courts, in most states there are privacy protections that would allow you to proceed with a fictitious name, so as a John Doe, or a Jane Doe, as such that your name would not be public, and made public even through a trial. You could still be in a courtroom and not identified by your true or real name even to that kind of public proceeding.
