Court Reservation System (CRS)

The Court Reservation System (CRS) allows users to reserve a motion hearing date. The use of the Court Reservation System is for all limited civil, unlimited civil and unlawful detainer courtrooms within the Riverside Superior Court. Parties can utilize CRS to make and manage their own hearing reservations, within parameters set by the courtrooms. CRS is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

You will not be charged the applicable motion filing fee and/or first paper fee at the time you make your reservation. You will be charged the applicable motion filing fee and/or first paper fee at the time you file the motion. You will be charged the applicable $20.00 continuance fee if you reschedule your hearing reservation.

After you make your reservation, the Court will send a reservation email to the e-mail address that you provided. The email will include a Reservation ID and PIN that will be required should you wish to reprint your receipt, update your contact information, reschedule or cancel your reservation. Receiving the email does not mean your motion has been added to the court's calendar.

To expedite your motion filing, please indicate the CRS Reservation ID number on the motion/document face page.
