15 V.S.A. § 788. Parent's responsibility



§ 788. Parent's responsibility

(a) Any parent subject to a child support or parental rights and responsibilities order shall notify in writing the court which issued the most recent order and the office of child support of his or her current mailing address and current residence address and of any change in either address within seven days of the change, until all obligations to pay support or support arrearages, or to provide for parental rights and responsibilities are satisfied. For good cause the court may keep information provided under this subsection confidential.

(b) When a wage withholding order is in effect, either parent shall notify in writing the registry of the name and address of a new employer within seven days of commencing new employment. If the registry has received information that a parent has changed employment it shall notify the other parent of the fact of the change but shall not disclose the identity or the location of the employer. On request of a parent, the registry shall provide information on the other parent's wages.

(c) In all cases in which a temporary or final order for relief from abuse has been entered, information provided under this section shall be kept confidential by the court. The court, for good cause shown, may release such information. (Added 1983, No. 222 (Adj. Sess.); amended 1985, No. 63, § 12; 1989, No. 220 (Adj. Sess.), § 8; 1997, No. 63, § 12, eff. Sept. 1, 1997.)
