How to request copies

The court encourages parties to conduct their own records search through the court’s Public Access system.

If court staff is asked to complete a records search and the search takes more than 10 minutes, a fee of $15.00 will be assessed pursuant to Government Code section 70627(c) for each search conducted.

The fee for copies is $.50 per page and if certification is requested, an additional $25.00 per document will be assessed.

Requests for records searches, copies, or certification may be made in person or by mail. If the request is made by mail, complete the Request for Records Search and/or Copies form and submit a check payable to the ‘Riverside Superior Court.’ DO NOT SEND CASH. If the total amount owing is unknown, indicate under the amount line ‘not to exceed $40.00.’ The correct amount will be filled in and a receipt will be forwarded along with the requested copies. All checks must be preprinted from the banking institution with the maker’s name. Copy orders are filled within 7-10 working days.

Please include a self-addressed, stamped envelope large enough to accommodate the requested documents.
