As a general rule, yes. There are some exceptions such as cases using a confidential informant and in some cases psychological reports can be sealed but other than than for an order to be binding on a person they should have been notified of the order and usually they should have been served a copy of the order.
If a person was sued and defaulted by not filing an answer then they would still be bound by the order even if they claim to have never received it.
Thank you very much!
