Criminal Case Record Search

The Clerk’s Office will process requests for a criminal record search made in person or by mail. The Criminal Division does not conduct record searches by telephone.

Criminal Record Search Fee

A record search fee of $15.00 is required for each record search without a case number (GC § 70627(c)). A record search fee of $15.00 is also required for any search requiring more than 10 minutes of the clerk’s time (with or without a case number).

You may avoid paying the search fee by conducting your own record search on-line using our case index to find the case number(s).
