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

You are not required to tell the court in Louisiana if you move, but 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 protective order. If you provide your new address to the court, you can ask that it be kept confidential.1 You can also give the court an adress of a trusted friend or P.O. box if you feel unsafe giving out your street address.
