IN THE CIRCUIT COURT OF THE EIGHTH JUDICIAL CIRCUIT, IN AND FOR ALACHUA COUNTY, FLORIDA
IN RE: THE ADOPTION OF CASE NO.: 6815-C
MICHAEL EDWARD CHALEK
MOTION TO UNSEAL THE COURT FILE
COMES NOW the Petitioner, by and through his undersigned attorneys and moves this Court for the entry of an order unsealing the court file as to this cause and, in support, says:
1. On December 14, 1998, this Court, Judge Cates presiding, granted disclosure of all adoption information in the hands of the Department of Children and Family Services. There is no record that the Court file itself has been opened.
2. A Petition for Annulment of Adoption and Amendment of Certificate of Live Birth has been filed herein.
3. A hearing is scheduled for December 13, 1999, on that Petition for Annulment.
The Petitioner believes that the court file itself may have a bearing on the cause and that with all the other records being opened and public no cause persist for the court file itself to be sealed.
Respectfully submitted this ______ day of November, 1999.
