I am going through a background check with Lowes. I have had

I am going through a background check with Lowes. I have had no felonies and no misdemeanors. However, I did have a restraining order placed against me nearly 20 years ago. It shows up when I enter the US Border and they always ask me if I know Adam Klein and if I am traveling with him etc. I tell them no and it is quite upsetting. I don't know if it will show up on the background check or not or if it will prevent me from getting the job. I would like to get rid of this order and to have it removed so that I go through US customs without being further questioned for sure. It is quite upsetting. The guy was an ex boyfriend of mine and he was a real jerk and at the time, I needed some answers that I never got. Do you know how to get rid of that and what can I do if it comes up on the Lowes employment background check. Do you think that it will prevent me from getting the job. They claimed that it would take 48 hours to do the check but it has been 3 days so far. The incident happened back on the east coast and I am now in Idaho.
