Can I keep my personal information confidential?

Yes.  Your personal information (such as your address) can be available to the other people involved in the case unless you can prove to the judge that the health, safety, or liberty of a party or child would be unreasonably put at risk if this identifying information is not kept confidential.  The judge can hold a hearing ex parte (without the other party present) when making this decision.  Also, if there is an existing order from another case that says that your identifying the information cannot be disclosed, that could apply to the child support case as well.*
