Thanks for using JustAnswer.com

 

You need to go to the court and examine the file. You may have just received a copy of the Order. If the court file contains an original signed Order by the judge, then the Order is valid. If, however, the file does NOT contained an Order signed by the judge, then the Order is NOT valid.

 

I hope you find this information useful and that you PRESS THE GREEN ACCEPT BUTTON so that I can get credit for answering the question. Thank you.
