Effective September 1, 2011, the Ohio Supreme Court adopted new Probate Form 45(D) – Confidential Disclosure of Personal Identifiers. This form is to be used in probate courts to comply with Sup. Rule 45(D) that requires parties filing a case document to omit any personal identifiers from the document and include them on a separate form.
The Court also adopted minor revisions to Form 14.2 – Entry Approving Settlement and Distribution of Wrongful Death and Survival Claims and Form 18.9 – Petitioner’s Account. It is important to note that both of these forms indicate on the bottom of the form: “Amended: September 1, 2011 Discard all previous versions of this form.” These forms are available on the Ohio Supreme Court website. The amendments to Standard Probate Forms 14.2, 18.9 and 45(D) were prepared by the Forms Committee of the Ohio Association of Probate Judges and recommended by the Commission on Rules of Superintendence.
