Title 255—LOCAL


In Re: Promulgation of Local Rules; No. 1793 S 1989

[40 Pa.B. 2531]
[Saturday, May 15, 2010]


And Now, this 28th day of April 2010, Dauphin County Local Rules of Civil Procedure 205.2(a)(1)(n) is promulgated as follows:

Rule 205.2(a). Physical Characteristics of Pleadings and Other Legal Papers.

(1)(n) Unless required by an applicable law or rule of court or unless so directed by the court, parties or their attorneys may include only:

(1) the last four digits of the social security number or the taxpayer identification number;

(2) the year of the individual's birth;

(3) the last four digits of the financial account information

in documents filed with the Prothonotary. The responsibility for redacting these personal identifiers rests solely with the parties. Documents will not be reviewed by the Prothonotary for compliance with the rule.


 Pursuant to 23 Pa.C.S.A. § 4304.1(a)(3), the complete Social Security Number is required when the divorce file is submitted to the court for entry of a divorce decree. Dauphin County uses a form entitled 'Divorce Information Sheet' for the collection of this information. This sheet is pulled from the Prothonotary's file after the entry of the divorce decree and is never available to the public.

 These amendments shall be effective upon publication on the UJS web portal.

By the Court

President Judge
