Changing Your Registration Information


Changes to an attorney's registration information (address, phone number, or any other information with the exception of a name change) are to be filed with the Office of Court Administration within 30 days of the change. All changes must be submitted in writing, by the attorney. Changes will not be accepted over the phone. The attorney must include in the correspondence his/her full name, Attorney Registration number and an indication of the nature of the change (i.e., home vs business address is being changed). Changes may be submitted in any of the following formats:

  • Electronically, via your Attorney Online Services account Log-in
  • On the Registration form. Cross out the incorrect information and write in the corrected/new information. Return the form (with the registration fee) to the address noted on the form.
  • On the blue receipt. Cross out the incorrect information and write in the corrected/new information. Sign and return the receipt to the address noted on the form.
  • Via a personal e-mail to: attyreg@nycourts.gov
    Requests for address changes will not be accepted if e-mailed from another person, secretary, etc.
