Hi,

I'm Zoey.

I've reviewed your post. Is this an order granted by a civil judge or was it part of a criminal case?

no i don't think it's criminal case, it says "threating", i remember it's granted by civil judge
Family Lawyer: Zoey, JD, Lawyer replied 8 months ago

Thank you. If it's a civil court order, then it will not turn up on a fingerprint check as part of his record. Only criminal cases would do that. However, there would be a record of this in the court files, and it could be found by anyone who would know to look for it.

In order to seal it, you would have to petition the judge who issued it. That judge would have to balance your privacy interests against the public's right to know and the state's preference for public records. With a good argument, however, it can be done.
