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

Although it is not required by law, it may be a good idea for you provide the court that issued your protection order with your new address so you can be notified in case the abuser asks the court to dismiss the protection order. To notify the issuing court, contact the court clerk and provide them with your new address. This address can be kept confidential, and you may be able to use a friend’s address or a P.O. Box.
