[Approved, effective November 1, 1999 until July 1, 2001; approved, effective May 1, 2001; as amended by Supreme Court Order No. 14-8300-023, effective for all pleadings and papers filed on or after December 31, 2014.]

            Committee commentary. — The committee assumes that the district court has inherent power to grant requests of this type under compelling circumstances when petitioner demonstrates a reasonable basis to believe that the petitioner's physical safety or that of a household member would be threatened if petitioner's current address is made available to respondent. The form provides an alternative means by which respondent can serve pleadings and other papers on petitioner.
