1. Each petition or complaint, answer, appearance, first motion, or any document filed with the clerk of the district court which brings new parties into an action shall bear a personal identification number. The personal identification number shall be the employer identification number or the social security number of each separate party. If an individual party's driver's license lists a distinguishing number other than the party's social security number, the document filed with the clerk of the district court shall also contain the distinguishing number from the party's driver's license.
2. The clerk of the district court shall affix the identification numbers required pursuant to subsection 1 to any judgment, sentence, dismissal, or other paper finally disposing of an action.
3. The requirements of subsection 1 do not apply to actions filed by the child support recovery unit established pursuant to chapter 252B. For actions filed by the child support recovery unit, the clerk of the district court shall generate an alternative personal identification number if the party's social security number or driver's license number is not provided or available through other sources.
4. Beginning October 1, 1998, a party, except the child support recovery unit, filing a petition, complaint, answer, appearance, first motion, or any document with the clerk of district court to establish or modify an order for child support under chapter 236, 252A, 252K, 598, or 600B shall provide the clerk of the district court with the social security number of the child. The clerk of the district court shall keep the social security number of the child confidential, except the clerk shall provide the number to the child support recovery unit to be included in the records of the state case registry created under section 252B.24.
