Will Colorado Follow New Missouri State Law?
In a move that took public records advocates by surprise, a Missouri state law that goes into effect today closes most documents in divorces currently on file in Missouri courts. Court clerks will now be required to shield information in those files on the parties' Social Security numbers, credit card numbers and bank accounts. Legislators said the changes were needed to reduce identity theft. Under federal law, child-support orders must include the full Social Security numbers of parents and any minor children, and this information can provide an inviting target for identity thieves. Those who practice family law in Colorado wonder if this state will adopt a similar law in the future.
