Do I need to tell the court in Colorado if I move?

The abuser may attempt to change (modify) or cancel (vacate) the protection order so you would want the court to have your address so that you can be served with notice of the hearing. If you do decide to provide your new address to the court, you may want to request that it be kept confidential. But remember that confidential records may be accessible to certain court officials or law enforcement officials. If you feel unsafe giving your address, you may give the address of a trusted friend or a P.O. Box.
