A: Guardianships are not confidential cases and are open to viewing by the public. In many courts the Minute Orders are available on the court website. However, a large number of courts have still not caught up with having a website that will allow it. First go to the court website in the county in which the case is located and check the availability of online records. If there is none you can go to the court and get copies from the clerk's office.

That being said, most courts in California are shut down for the time being and the file may not be accessible at this time. Keep you fingers crossed the case is in one of the counties that have online access.

A: Contact the clerks office. If in writing, send them a small check, and a self addressed stamped envelope. Be specific as to the date of the minute order. I am assuming it is your case, as they are confidential.
