Question by : can i disolve a record if it was false? I need immediate advice: here’s the problem: 3 years ago while making a report of past childhood abuse to a social worker at a hospital I accidentally named the wrong person as the offender rather then the rightful offender!! I tried to clarify this with them and asked if they could re-write the. Report deleting the wrong name and put the right name on instead— they said they could only add a “supplemental report” stating that I may have made a mistake but they could not actually delete or disolve the original report! I called an lawyer and they told me the same damn thing!! Here’s my question : is there any way I could hire a lawyer to disolve and delete the first report due to wrongfulness?? And make a new one instead?? I do not want the record “sealed” or “expunged” I want it dissolved so I can make the right report instead. Please tell me can I do this?? And how? I’m in california. I’m 24. Best answer:

It is illegal to delete, modify, or desolve most government records. You correct a previous record by making a supplemental record.
Some records are confidential by law, such as many records of law enforcement, child protective services, and hospitals. Some records can be sealed by court order.
No, you do not “dissolve” or destroy an old record. You may choose to supplement it to make corrections, but that could be a problem, too. Consult your attorney. You do not want to incriminate yourself by swearing to two conflicting statements. Be very careful.
