Revised: 11/2014, CN 10483 (How to Ask the Court to Change or Enforce an Order in Your Case) page 8 of 25
Step 7: Fill out the Notice to Litigants
The Notice to Litigants form lets the other party
know how to respond to your Notice of Motion.
Your motion could be dismissed if your motion
papers do not include the Notice to Litigants.
Step 8: (Only complete this step if your
child support order is being
administered through the Probation
Division and you want to change that
order.) Fill out the Statement for the
Probation Division (Form F)
You must fill out this form if you are filing a Motion
to Increase or Decrease Child Support payments that
are paid to or received through the Probation
Division. The form helps Probation know what the
court has ordered so that it can keep track of child
support payments in the case. If you are not paying
or receiving child support through the Probation
Division, but are filing a Motion to Increase or
Decrease Child Support payments, do not complete
this form, instead go directly to Step 9.
Step 9: Fill out the Case Information
If you are filing an FM/matrimonial motion and
asking for any type of monetary relief such as an
increase or decrease in support, you must complete
and file a copy of the last CIS submitted to the
court and complete a new and current CIS. This
means you will be attaching two CIS forms to your
current motion. The two CISs tell the court your
past financial status as well as your current status,
and both must be attached to your Notice of Motion.
The Case Information Statement form can be
obtained at njcourts.gov. Download a copy of the
Case Information Statement from the Judiciary
website and submit it with this packet if you are
requesting any change in the financial status of your
case. Don’t forget to attach proof of your income
(i.e., pay stubs, tax returns, etc.)
You need to make an extra blank copy of the CIS
before filling it out, so you can include it in the
packet of papers you mail or deliver to the other
party. The other party must also complete a CIS and
mail or deliver one completed copy back to you and
one completed copy to the court.
If you have completed a CIS before in this case,
attach a copy of it to the CIS you just completed,
and include it with your papers you are filing with
Step 10: Fill out the Letter to the Clerk
Complete the form letter addressed to the Clerk of
the Superior Court, Attn: Family Division Manager
(or the name of the county). You must include with
this letter a $50 check or money order (FM cases
only) payable to the Treasurer, State of New Jersey,
and a stamped return envelope addressed to yourself.
Do not send cash. All other case types (FD, FV,
etc.) do not require a filing fee. You must include a
stamped, return envelope addressed to yourself.
This letter must be the first page of the packet of
papers that you file with the court.
Step 11: Check your completed forms.
Check your forms and make sure they are complete.
Remove all instruction sheets before submitting
to the court. Make sure you have signed the forms
Step 12: Mail or deliver your package of
completed papers to the court and the
other party in the case.
Keep one copy of the entire packet for your own
records. Follow the guidelines below on how to mail
or deliver your completed forms. You must prove to
the court that the other non-filing party has been
served with your papers.
Make sure you have all of the following items and
that they are in this order:
• Letter to the Clerk of the Superior Court.
• $50 check or money order (FM cases only).
Make the check or money order payable to,
Treasurer, State of New Jersey.
Do not send cash. If you pay in person, keep the
receipt for your records.
• Stamped return envelope addressed to yourself
for the court order that will be mailed to you (if
you did not select oral argument)
• Notice of Motion.
• Any papers to support your motion (called
exhibits), including all prior orders.
• Proposed Order.
