Important Notice about Access to Your Case
Due to the court closure and significant reduction in services, the court is
unable to provide court orders, minute orders, and child custody mediation
reports in person or by mail; they are only available online using our Public
Case Access System. The court is also unable to provide you with access
to your court file.
Access to court orders and minute orders is the only way to obtain
instructions on how to appear for hearings and trials, and to know what the
court ordered in your case. Access to child custody mediation reports is
necessary so that you know what child custody, visitation, or other
requirements that the mediator recommended to the court.
To get secure access to your case online, you must complete and submit to
the court the attached Family Law Case Participant Enrollment Form -
Party, along with a copy of your driver’s license to get an account to our
Public Case Access System. A separate form must be filed for each case
or when you change your email address.
Once you complete the form, you must submit it in person at the courthouse
(Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.) using the Drop Box, or by
US Mail at 3341 Power Inn Road, Sacramento, CA 95826.
Submitting the form immediately is important because it takes:
Three working days for the court to process it if filed by Drop Box
Seven working days for the court to process it after mailing using
US Mail
Once your access is set up you will receive an email letting you know that
you are subscribed to your case. If you do not receive an email notifying
you that you are subscribed to your case during the timeframes identified
above, please inform the court using our Contact Us page at:
