Changing your address

While you can update your phone number and email address on the ECF system, address and firm changes require a paper trail.

Your Options:

  • File a Notice of Change of Address (under Notices) in any one active case. Court staff will make sure that the change is done globally in all cases. 
  • If you have no open case, you can send a letter to the Clerk's Office advising of the new information.

 

Changing your phone number

  • Login to ECF using your electronic filing login and password.
  • Select Utilities, Maintain Your Account
  • Highlight the old phone number in the Phone field, and type in the new one.
