Effective March 23, 2020, and until further notice, the Superior Court of Los
Angeles County will close the Clerk’s Offices at all 38 courthouses in response to the
COVID-19 public health threat. Most courthouses, except the Beverly Hills and
Catalina courthouses, will remain open for time-sensitive, essential court hearings
and matters in accordance with Presiding Judge Kevin C. Brazile’s General Orders.

The Court is establishing telephone numbers and other means for litigants, counsel
and the public to conduct limited, time-sensitive and essential services. Special
provisions will be made for the filing and processing of Restraining Orders, ex parte
proceedings in Family Law, Probate and Civil, and certain types of Emergency Writ
Petitions. These new procedures will be outlined soon in a subsequent public notice
and posted on the Court’s website:

For individuals needing to file court documents, drop boxes will be set up at the
entrances to all courthouses. If a conformed copy of the filed documents is needed,
leave a self-addressed, stamped envelope with the filing. No cash will be accepted
at the drop boxes, only credit cards and checks. The documents will be deemed
filed same-day if received by 4:30 p.m. Drop boxes will be checked frequently.

Unrepresented litigants who cannot electronically file or fax file their pleading and
attorneys who are required to submit paper copies of pleadings, are strongly
encouraged to send them via U.S. Mail or other commercial delivery. Courthouse
addresses are available at this link:

Updates will be provided as more information becomes available.
