    I would like to know if a lawyer can get a closed court and suppress your name from being put in the newspaper for Centrelink fraud?

    No, probably not.

    There would need to be either a risk to the safety of somebody around you, or
    there would need to be something in play like publication getting in the way
    of an (another) ongoing investigation (by police), or an ongoing a compliance activity
    (by the department).

    Your personal embarrassment and humiliation is not a factor.
