Do I need to tell the Court in Illinois if I move?

You are not required to tell the court in Illinois if you move unless you have a case pending in an Illinois court. However, it might be a good idea to give the court a current address so that you can be notified of any actions that are taken regarding your Order of Protection.

Also, if you are participating in the Illinois address confidentiality program, you need to tell the Attorney General about any change of address at least 7 days before your address changes. If you do not tell the Attorney General about your change of address, your program certification will be cancelled.1
