Notice of change of address in a California divorce
Posted on Wednesday, March 28, 2018 at 9:15 AM

A notice of change of address in a California divorce case is the topic of this blog post.

A notice of change of address in a California divorce case is required pursuant to California Rule of Court 2.200.

California Rule of Court 2.200 states that,

“An attorney or self-represented party whose mailing address, telephone number, fax number, or e-mail address (if it was provided under rule 2.111(1)) changes while an action is pending must serve on all parties and file a written notice of the change.”

Failure to timely serve and file a notice of change of address can have negative consequences such as not receiving timely notice of scheduled court hearings or trial dates. In the case of Lint v. Chisolm 121 Cal.App.3d 615, 620-621 the defendant failed to notify the other parties or the court of his change of address.  He did not receive the notice of trial and a default judgment was entered against him. He filed a motion to vacate the default judgment which was denied. He appealed and the Court of Appeal upheld the denial of his motion to vacate stating at pages 620-621 that,

“Chisholm did not show (1) his failure to notify the court of his address change, or alternatively to otherwise adequately arrange for mail delivery, was the act of a reasonably prudent person under the same circumstances; or (2) the nonreceipt occurred "without any fault of his own...." Chisholm, a law school graduate licensed to practice in two jurisdictions (but not California), is a member of the United States Supreme Court Bar and United States Tax Court. Moreover, during the two-month period between the mailing of notice and the date of trial he was a party to at least seven other lawsuits in San Diego County. He was aware of his duty to inform the court of any change of address, and his failure to do so does not enable him to claim lack of notice.”
