You Can’t Close Newspapers

Sometimes, for a variety of reasons, records of a birth or a court case may be closed. Remember that sometimes that birth may be listed in the newspaper or there may be a reference to the court action in the newspaper as well.

It’s hard to restrict information once it appears in print.

    So true! Have seen adoptions with names of birth and adoptive parents provided, but those court records are sealed up tight! Thanks for a good insight.

      Those were one of the examples that was in the back of my mind when I wrote the tip. That’s very true.
