    Notifying court of change of address...

    What is the name of your state? MD

    Do you fine folks think that it is ok to send notification of a change of address for the NCP to the court via mail?

    The order states

    "ORDERED, that the obligor(me) is required to notify the court within 10 days of any change of address or employment so long as the obligation of support remains in effect; and it is further
    ORDERED, that failure to comply with the foregoing requirements of notification of address will subject the obliger to a penalty not to exceed $250.00; and may result in the obligor's not receiving notification of proceedings for earnings withholding"

    No mention of how to notify, although I have already emailed the address to ...her...

    I'm also not sure why the threat of "earnings withholding" since I already have that(it also has a statement to the effect that if I get 30 days in "arrears", that I will be subject to withholding, go figure)

    My thought is to just send it 1st class mail to the court, ...her..., and just to be a PIA, her lawyer(who I'm still considering reporting to the MD Bar for knowingly uttering false statements, but that's another thread).

    BEST WAY

    Preferably, you carry your change of address to the courthouse with the info on your lawsuit.

    Then ... pay attention here ... HAVE A CLERK SIGN A RECEIPT.

    Send a copy to the other party certified mail, return receipt requested.



    NEXT BEST WAY
    Next best, send it certified mail, return receipt requested. Send a copy to the other party certified mail, return receipt requested.

    sj, I usually have them stamp a copy of all my motions, etc, for my records when I file something.

    Just feeling lazy and don't want to go to the courthouse...

    Correct...that's the receipt I was talking about.

    Can't imagine why. They smell so good, people are so nice, everyone is glad to be there, and everything is so organized!

    So decide if it's worth the penalty if they lose your information, or it's recieved/stamped late.

    Seriously. Go to the court house. You have enough issues w/ without creating more.

    Ok, ok...

    ...I give. I will get over my laziness, just this one time, to go on down there.

    I don't even know if I need to send a copy to her lawyer, but I am anyway(maybe it will cost ...her... a buck or two)

    I fax my letters to the Friend of the Court since our fax machine will print a happy confirmation sheet for me.

    Also make sure you notify CSEA at their address as that quote is a child support law.
    Parents should remember 3 things: Love your kids more than you hate your ex; when you have children the relationship with the other parent is until death; your children determine what type of nursing home you end up in.
    Nothing stated by me should be taken as giving you legal advice or forming an attorney/client relationship.

    I've removed the knife from my back, polished it, and will one day return it -- long after you think I have forgotten.
