When a family law case goes to court, the personal information of the family members involved, including children, is generally required for proceedings to go forward.
Confidential personal information may include:
To ensure that the court has access to the information it needs while protecting the privacy of those involved, a Confidential Information Form is now required by court rule (UTCR 2.130). This form keeps items of confidential personal information out of family law case documents filed in court and away from public view.
Each person involved in the case receives a notice that a Confidential Information Form has been filed with their order and they may obtain or view a copy of their confidential information through the court. A party may obtain or view a copy of the other party's Confidential Information Form by court order. If there is an Order for Nondisclosure, the Confidential Information Form is still filed in court, but the other party will not have access to the information on it.
To get an Order of Nondisclosure the Oregon Child Support Program must be provided with an address that will be shared with the court and the other parties to the action.
For more information please see the FAQs from the Oregon Judicial Department or contact your local child support office.
