Are parents required to tell each other their address and phone number?

Anyone who has, or is filing for, custody, parenting time, or grandparent visitation rights has to inform anyone else who has or is seeking those rights of their home address, phone numbers, and email addresses. This contact information must be provided in writing, including electronically, to each person who is entitled to the information. If any of the information changes over time, the updated information must be provided.1 The only exception to this is if the judge rules that sharing this information creates a significant risk of substantial harm to the person required to give the information or to the child.2
