We all know the basic tenet that anything filed with the court must be served on the other side, right? Well, for some reason Motions to Withdraw Appearance don’t always get that treatment. Not only must the Motion (with 10-day letter attachment) be served on the other side, the Order Granting Withdrawal must show distribution to you, your client, and the other side. Although pro se litigants are not required to file electronically, you might consider adding your client’s email address to your withdrawal form (with the client’s permission, of course) for possible future use.
