Ask a Business Lawyer. Get Business Law Questions Answered ASAP.
Dear Lake Worth, Florida:
Thank you for the additional information. Do the records you want pertain to you, or to someone else?
Because the records you are asking for are yours, the Social Security Administration can release those records with your written consent. Here is a link to a form you can use for doing this: http://ssa.gov/online/ssa-3288.pdf. Since you want to use the records in Court, you need to ask the SSA to certify the records for you when you request them.
Here is a link to a publication on this issue you may find helpful: http://www.tennessee.gov/humanserv/rehab/TN-DDS-article.pdf.
