G.S. 110-139.1

Nonjudicial records maintained by the state DHHS’ parent locator service are confidential and may be disclosed only to persons directly connected with the child support enforcement program or to judges, court clerks, and prosecuting attorneys, upon request, for the purpose of enforcing federal or state laws regarding the unlawful taking or restraint of a child, entering or enforcing a court order regarding child custody or visitation, establishing paternity, or establishing, enforcing, or modifying child support orders. DHHS may not disclose information from the parent locator service if there is reasonable evidence of domestic violence or child abuse and disclosure of the information would harm the child or the child’s custodial parent.
