Children listed on complaint

When filling out the complaint, we have adult children as well as minor children. Are all to be listed on the complaint, or just the minor children?

The minor children’s full names and dates of birth must be listed in the complaint. Adult children do not need to be named in the complaint but they must be accounted for.

For example, your complaint could say, “There were four children born to the parties, two of which have reached the age of majority and two that are minors, to wit: Child A, born on XXX, and Child B, born on XXX.”
