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

You may not required to tell the court when you move, unless the judge adds a specific requirement to do so in your order of protection. However, it may be a good idea to give the court an updated address if you won’t be getting mail at your old address, in case there are any legal papers filed from the abuser regarding your order of protection. If you are afraid to provide your new address to the court, you can request that your address is kept confidential or you may also consider using the address of a friend you trust or a P.O. box instead.
