Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Hello and thank you for your question.
There is no time limit
However a court will normally interfere and lmit the subpoena if it is overbroad
so for example if the records are in connection with a dispute over 2 years, that would be the span of the subpoena.
The other issue if whether the company still has records available
but that would vary on a case by case basis.
I hope the information is helpful and fast
could it go back 9 to 10 years
You can ask for it for a court is not likely to permit such a time span unless there is good reason for it
The request should be specific to the claim and not overbroad or burdensome
If no one objects, then you could also do it
i think my wife was having an affair during that 2000 2001
You may request such information then as it is relevant
I hope I have been helpful
If so, please click ACCEPT
do the phone companies store records that long
Yes, they should have it
They would need to respond with the record or explanation if not available
Nothing to lose in trying
how do you get them
The subpoena would be issued
and they would have to provide them
Normally it is issued by the lawyer or the court
in the context of a lawsuit
Otherwise a subpoena cannot issue
I hope that all makes sense and answers your question.
If I can clarify anything, please ask me
Otherwise, please click accept as that is the only way I get credit for the answers.
i had heard that companies quite after 5 years
It really depends on the account and the company. Going back 10 years, they may not have it but given storage capabilities, it may be a matter of recovering it from archives
