How do I change my address with the Court?

The first step to changing your mailing address is to file a Notice of Change of Address in all pending cases you have with the Court. Additionally, within CM/ECF, you may have the ability to change your address. From the ‘Utilities’ menu, select the ‘Maintain Your Account’ link. If the fields are available for you to edit, then you can update your mailing address. Once you update your mailing address, the system will then prompt you to select the cases (both closed and pending) that you would like to be associated with. Please note that, even if you edit your mailing address directly within CM/ECF, you still need to file a Notice of Change of Address in all of your pending cases. If your mailing address is ghosted then the Clerk’s Office will associate you with only those specific cases that you have filed a Notice of Change of Address. This is relevant for those attorneys that are leaving a firm as some cases may be staying with the firm whereas other cases may be moving with the attorney.

If you have no pending cases with the Court, then you may have the ability to change your address within CM/ECF. From the ‘Utilities’ menu, select the ‘Maintain Your Account’ link. If the fields are available for you to edit, then you can update your mailing address. Once you update your mailing address, the system will then prompt you to select the closed cases that you would like to be associated with. If the mailing address is ghosted, then you cannot change your address within CM/ECF. You will then need to send a letter to the Clerk’s Office stating your name, bar number, old mailing address and new mailing address. It is also important to state in your letter that you have no pending cases with the Court. If you would like to be associated with any specific closed cases, please indicate those exact case numbers in your letter as well.
