Do I have to share my personal information when filling out the court forms?

If you are afraid to include your personal information on the court forms (because your harasser will receive a copy of all of the forms you fill out), you may request that your address be kept confidential.1 However, please keep in mind that it is important that the clerk knows how to get in contact with you.

If you are worried about the harasser finding out your address, you may also want to learn more about the Nebraska Office of the Secretary of State’s Address Confidentiality Program for victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking.
