What information will I need to give when I file for custody?

When you file for custody, you will need to give the following information:

  • your child’s current address or, if your child is not living with you, where your child is living if you know;
  • any addresses where your child lived during the last five years;
  • the names and current addresses of anyone your child lived with during the last five years;
  • the names and addresses of anyone who has physical custody of your child or claims rights of legal custody, physical custody, or visitation;
  • the court name, case number, and date of any older custody or visitation order or case that you had for your child; and
  • information about any other court case you know of that could affect custody- for example, a case about an order for protection against domestic violence, termination of parental rights, or adoption.1

However, if it’s not safe for you to give your address or other personal information, you can ask to keep your information confidential as explained in Can I keep my address confidential?
