Instructions for Personal Information Form for UIFSA § 311

To view the current 2008 UIFSA enacted in Oklahoma, view 43 OS Section 601-101 to Section 601-903.

This article provides instructions for completing the Personal Information Form for UIFSA § 311. The Personal Information Form for UIFSA § 311 is intended to safeguard the privacy of individuals by providing a means to record required UIFSA personal information on a separate document rather than requiring it to appear on all of the forms needed to process their case. For those states where tribunal records are open to the general public, this disclaimer indicates that the form should be protected from public view in a manner and to an extent authorized by state law and tribunal rules. This form must be included with all petitions to establish parentage and/or a child support order or to register and modify a child support order. The information on this form must be filed with the tribunal, but should not be filed in a public access file.

Nondisclosure Finding/Affidavit attached -If there is a finding prohibiting disclosure of a party’s or child(ren)’s address/identifying information or an affidavit alleging that disclosure of such information would result in risk of harm, check the box for “Nondisclosure Finding/Affidavit attached” and attach a copy of the finding/affidavit in accordance with section 312 of UIFSA. If there is a finding/affidavit prohibiting disclosure, the information must be sealed and may not be disclosed to the other party or the public. You may provide the address of the IV-D agency as a substitute address for the protected party.

This form contains sensitive information – do not file this form in a public access file

This form includes information that may pose a significant risk to an individual if made available in a public forum or inappropriately disclosed. This form is filed with the petition or pleading, but should not be filed or included in a record available to the general public. The information on this form may be disclosed to the parties in the case, unless accompanied by a nondisclosure finding/affidavit.

If you are not the intended recipient, you are hereby notified that any use, disclosure, distribution, or copying of this form or its contents is strictly prohibited.

  • For an address outside the United States, be sure to include the foreign country and postal code.
  • Tribal IV-D programs may choose to use the federal Intergovernmental forms. However, they are not required to use or accept such forms. If you have any questions, contact the tribal IV-D agency directly using the contact information on the OCSE website.
  • Where forms request a locator code, note that tribal locator codes uniquely identify tribal cases with “9” in the first position, 0 (zero) in the second position, and then a 3-character tribal code defined by the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA).
  • UIFSA requires that the petition or accompanying documents include certain identifying information regarding the parties and child(ren) (e.g., residential address, social security number) unless a party alleges in an affidavit or a pleading under oath that the health, safety, or liberty of a party or child would be jeopardized by disclosure of such information. In that event, the information must be sealed. In some states a tribunal may have authority to make a nondisclosure finding.
  • If a jurisdiction has reason to believe that information should not be released because of safety concerns, it should ensure that there is a nondisclosure finding or an allegation in an affidavit or the pleading that disclosure of identifying information would result in a risk of harm, as provided under section 312 of UIFSA. In addition to identifying information included on this form, it may be appropriate to submit certain financial information under seal.

In the “NOTE:” section, check any of the following that apply:

  • This form sent through EDE – Check if this form was sent through the Electronic Document Exchange (EDE).
    • CSENet and EDE transactions are the recommended methods for making requests or sending information to another state. If CSENet is not listed as an option on the form, then it cannot be used to convey any of the requests or information provided on the form.
