John Helmer’s Comment on Personal Identifiers

Thanks to John H. Helmers, Jr. for his comment on this proposed change to the civil rules:
“It seems classic overkill to eliminate the use of the names of children from every pleading (Petitions for Dissolution of Marriage, Motions, Custody Evaluations, Affidavits) to prevent identity theft. Have there been verified instances where individuals have used names of children to steal identities? I tend to believe that the use of initials for children depersonalizes the proceedings and the fact that Family Court is dealing with the lives of real children.”
