Question about sealed records post #1  quote:



If I had records that have been sealed, how easy/hard would it be for a lawyer to access them? Thanks!

Why don't you call a lawyer and ask? May be easier.

It depends on what type of sealed records you're talking about. Is it a criminal record, under the age of 18... or sealed adoption records, or something else?!

You would need a court order. Know any judges?

Wow, maybe I'm a little late. Well, it depends on the circumstances of the sealed records, but if you can provide reason that they have to be opened you'd just get a court order.

Um, if you're worried that someone else might open your records, I'd suspect that:

a) You're in some sort of civil suit, in which case those records aren't comin' out easy. They're sealed for a reason.
b) You're in a criminal case, in which case they can probably get the records easily.
