Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act; disclosure of identifying information; pleading or affidavit. Clarifies that a hearing and written finding of the issue of the disclosure of certain identifying information of a child in a child custody proceeding shall be held and made by the court within 15 days of the filing of an affidavit that the health, safety, or liberty of a child would be jeopardized by disclosure of identifying information. Current law allows such filing to be made in the form of an affidavit or a pleading, but only applies the requirement that the court hear and decide the case within 15 days to pleadings.
