Notifying the Court of Address, Contact Information, or Name Changes
Talk to an attorney
The information on this page is not a substitute for legal advice. You are not required to hire an attorney, but legal matters can be complicated. Consider talking to an attorney to go over your options.
See our Finding Legal Help page for information about ways to get legal help. One way to talk to an attorney is to visit a free legal clinic. Clinics provide general legal information and give brief legal advice. You might also hire an attorney for just part of your case or to do one particular thing, rather than represent you for the whole case. Legal help is also available at discounted rates for people with modest incomes.
Notice of Change of Address and/or Other Contact Information
If you are involved in a court case, it is your responsibility to make sure that the court and all parties in the case have your current address and other contact information, including your email address and phone number.
You can use the form provided below and file it with the court. As with all other documents filed with the court, you must also serve all other parties in the case, unless you need to safeguard your address. URCP 5 governs service.
Notice of Change of Name
If you change your name while you are involved in a court case, it is your responsibility to notify the court and all parties in the case of your new name.
You can use the form provided below and file it with the court. Be sure to explain why your name has changed. For example, you may have gotten married, or you may have gotten divorced.
