ADMINISTRATIVE REGULATION - 97-1

RE: Disclosure of Family Court Records

Family Court records, including, but not limited to Domestic Relations' matters, Juvenile records, Protection from Abuse records, Adoption records, and Divorce records, are impounded and are not subject to inspection except by a party to the action or counsel of record for the party whose records are to be inspected.

These records may not be disclosed, unless otherwise provided by statute, or removed or inspected except by order of Administrative Judge of Family Court.

In the event these records are required as evidence in a civil, criminal, administrative or disciplinary proceeding, a verified petition setting forth specific reasons why the record is needed must be filed with the Administrative Judge of Family Court Division or his judicial designee.

An appropriate Order must accompany the petition.

DATE: 3/21/97 PAUL P. PANEPINTO
ADMINISTRATIVE JUDGE,
FAMILY COURT DIVISION
