Proposed Local Rules

 

ELECTRONIC FILING IS NOW AVAILABLE AT THE COURT

Like more than 30 other California superior courts, Mendocino Superior Court is pleased to announce the electronic filing is now available to most court filing parties and their attorneys. You can e-file from your office or home, 24/7 and filings will be received and processed by the court the following business day.   It is safe, secure and convenient.

Electronic filing will be mandatory for most civil, family law, probate and juvenile case types.  It will also be required for most criminal filings.  The court has adopted a Standing Order for Electronic Filing of Court Cases.  The Standing Order describes technology requirements and also lists documents that are exempt from e-filing.

Self-represented litigants are not required to e-file their documents, although e-filing is strongly encouraged. 

Please click here to review Important Information about e-filing.

If you have questions, please contact the court at court.administration@mendocino.courts.ca.gov.

 

ANNOUNCING THE COURT’S NEW CASE INFORMATION PORTAL

The Mendocino Superior Court Case Information Portal provides public access to all non-confidential court cases, including most Criminal, Traffic, Civil, Family Law and Probate cases.  No log-in or password is required unless the visitor wants to download or print court documents. 

Using the Portal’s Smart Search button, cases can be searched by case name, case number or party name and date of birth.  The information available in the case record includes:  basic case information, parties and their attorneys, scheduled hearings, a chronological history of actions in the case, disposition or judgment information, warrants, bonds, and any public documents that have been scanned in the case. 

Some cases types are confidential by law.  No confidential or sealed cases are available to the public in the Portal. 

In addition to viewing cases, visitors can pay their criminal case fines, traffic and non-traffic infraction fines and fees.  Visitors can also purchase court documents through the Portal at $.50 per page. 

Click here to explore the Portal and see how it can save you time and frustration by getting access to information more quickly, any time of the day or night.
