Hunter Biden has filed a request to seal all financial records in his ongoing child support suit to spare himself public ’embarrassment’ amid claims of ‘significant debts’, DailyMail.com can exclusively reveal.
The 49-year-old filed the motion for a Protective Order of his financial records in the Arkansas Circuit Court of Independence on Wednesday, citing fears that such information would be used ‘maliciously’ by the media if disclosed publicly.
‘The likelihood that [Biden’s] private records will be used in an inappropriate or malicious manner for reasons that have absolutely nothing to do with these proceedings is exceedingly high and should not be tolerated by the court,’ the filing reads.
Any such disclosures, Biden’s attorneys claim, would furthermore cause their client ‘undue prejudice, annoyance, embarrassment, and/or oppression.’
‘Due to the extraordinary circumstances surrounding the parties involved in this matter, it is in the interest of justice and necessary for a Protective Order to be in place,’ Biden’s attorney Dustin McDaniel states.

The filing comes just over a week after Biden was revealed to be the father of Lunden Robert’s child, having engaged in relations with the 28-year-old after meeting her at the Mpire Gentlemen’s Club in Washington D.C where she worked as a stripper.
While Roberts – who is demanding Biden pay her $11K in legal fees in addition to child support – is said to agree that a Protective Order is appropriate, she has so far refused to fully commit to the current terms demanded by Biden, despite his ‘best efforts’ to secure her acquiescence.
In addition to the Protective Order, Biden is also requesting an upcoming December 2 hearing be delayed until a decision on the order is made, adding that he has been so far been unable to complete an affidavit of his financials.
In a signed sworn statement, Biden claims he has been unable to complete the mandatory requirement because he currently lacks the information to do so.
‘In an effort to demonstrate to this court my good faith, I attest that I am unemployed and have had no monthly income since May 2019,’ Biden’s statement reads.

The former Ukraine energy executive goes on to admit he has incurred ‘significant debts’, partially caused by his April 2017 divorce to Kathleen Biden, which are currently being calculated by his accountants and will be disclosed to the courts as soon as possible.
‘For the aforementioned reasons, I cannot complete an Affidavit of Financial Means at the time,’ he claims.
While Roberts and Biden continue to negotiate the specific terms of the order, should agreement be found, all financial information disclosed by both the defendant and plaintiff during the proceedings will remain entirely confidential.
In addition to preventing the disclosure of Biden’s alleged debts, the embargo will also block the release of any information regarding Biden’s business ventures, investments, expenses, taxes or personal property valuations.
Any physical copies of documents detailing finances of either party would be filed under seal and must later be returned or destroyed, and any digital documents would need to be securely stored on encrypted devices.
Failure to comply with such demands – filed in accordance with Rule 26(c) of the Arkansas Rules of Civil Procedure – would leave any guilty party liable to charges of contempt of court, which could result in hefty fines or even jail time.
Last Wednesday, Biden was finally revealed to be the father of Roberts’ child following the outcome of a DNA test – something the 28-year-old had been urging Biden to take since May, following his repeated denials.
Roberts is demanding for Hunter to pay her $11k legal fees and child support for their baby, who she argues could be eligible for Secret Service protection because they’re the grandson of former Vice President Joe Biden.
She is also seeking for the court to seal case records to protect the child’s identity out of fear of safety for the baby and Roberts’ family, citing presidential candidate Biden’s political status.

In previous filings, Roberts said her child was born in August last year, confirming the child to be around 15-months-old. She referred to the infant as ‘Baby Doe’ and did not say whether it is a boy or girl.
Roberts’ legal team argues: ‘Baby Doe’s paternal grandfather, Joe Biden, is seeking the nomination of the Democratic Party for President of the United States of America. He is considered by some to be the person most likely to win his party’s nomination and challenge President Trump on the ballet in 2020.
‘The members of the Biden family either are protected or eligible to be protected by the United States Secret Service as a direct result of Joe Biden’s political status.
‘Baby Doe’s paternity could put the child and those close to the child at risk of harm for the same reasons the Biden family is protected by the United States Secret Service.’
Roberts filed a petition for paternity and support in May, saying Biden was the biological father of her baby, asking the court to establish paternity while seeking child support, health insurance and legal fees.
Biden had previously denied all allegations and demanded the suit be tossed.
This week, shocking reports emerged that Roberts – known by the stage name ‘Dallas’ – met Biden while working as a stripper at The Mpire Gentlemen’s Club in Washington D.C.

Biden allegedly frequented that club after dating his late brother’s widow.
Biden also allegedly visited Larry Flynt’s Hustler Club NYC in Manhattan two times about a year ago, where he spent several thousand dollars and on one occasion sent an employee out to buy a dildo for strippers to use on him.
Hunter Biden has been surrounded by controversy over the past few years and it is feared his escapades could affect his father’s chances of winning the Democratic nomination for presidency.
He was discharged from the US Naval Reserve in 2014, less than a year after being commissioned, after testing positive for cocaine and then his name, address and email were included when the cheating website Ashley Madison suffered a security breach in 2015.
He left his first wife Kathleen — the mother of his three daughters — in 2016 after 22 years of marriage and moved in with Hallie Biden, the widow of his elder brother Beau, who died from brain cancer the previous year.
In the divorce, his wife claimed he had spent ‘extravagantly on his own interests (including drugs, alcohol, prostitutes, strip clubs and gifts for women with whom he has sexual relations), while leaving the family with no funds to pay legitimate bills.’
Biden, an attorney with offices in Washington, D.C., split with Hallie earlier this year and on May 16 he married 32-year-old South African Melissa Cohen, whom he had only known for ten days. She had been living with a boyfriend up until April.
He would have been dating his sister-in-law when Roberts got pregnant in late 2017.
