To search for the Superior Court district and courthouse where your case
belongs, enter your search criteria in either the 'City/Community' or 'Zip
Code' or both fields, and press the 'SEARCH' button. Please note that
results of your search may differ according to whether you have an 'Unlimited
Civil' case (including claims over $25,000, Family and Probate cases), or a
'Limited Civil' case (including claims for $25,000 or less, Unlawful Detainer
and Small Claims). Please also be aware that adjustments in caseload
distributions in the San Fernando Valley and East Los Angeles areas, and in the
North Central District may require your civil or probate case to be filed or
heard in a different district than that indicated by this locator. If your case
is from these areas, you should check with the Clerk's Office in order to be
sure you have the correct information.
To obtain a list of Cities/Communities assigned to a courthouse in a district,
click on the down arrow located to the right of the 'Filing District /
Courthouse' field, select a courthouse in the district, and press the 'SEARCH'
The fact that the address you select happens to fall within a particular
district location does not necessarily mean your case is or must be assigned to
that district. Criteria for assignment of cases to court locations can be found
in Chapter Two, Local Rules.
Caution: Please be aware that a mailing address may not be a proper
indicator of true geographic location. Mailing addresses sometimes use the name
of a nearby community where the post office is located, instead of the actual
city or unincorporated area where the case originated. If you are unsure about
the true name of the community in which an address is located, you should
consult a map or other resource that accurately shows municipal boundaries,
such as a current Thomas Guide. Click here to locate and identify names of unincorporated areas of Los Angeles County and to find
the zip code for an address.
