Nondisclosure (privacy)

In child support cases, the law requires that the contact information (name, address, place of work) for both parents be included in the court order unless the court finds there is a reason not to make this information public. You can request to keep this information private, also called a nondisclosure. If all parties are in Texas, a party must request and justify the nondisclosure determination prior to the court entering the order protecting the party’s information. The most common justification is due to family violence. After a hearing in which a court considers the health, safety, or liberty of the party or the child, the court may order disclosure of information if the court determines that the disclosure serves the interests of justice.
