Address Notification

Requirements


Pursuant to Texas law, Article 45.057(j) of the Code of Criminal Procedure, you are being provided written notice of the following:
  • A child and a parent are required to appear before the court and have an obligation to provide the court in writing with the current address and residence of the child
  • The obligation does not end when the child reaches the age of 17
  • On or before the seventh day after the date the child or parent changes residence (any place where the child lives or resides for a period of at least 30 days), the child or parent shall notify the court of the current address in the manner directed by the court
  • Failure to provide notice is a Class C offense; the obligation to provide notice terminates on discharge and satisfaction of the judgment or final disposition not requiring a finding of guilt
