Orange County Courthouses

Last updated: October 14, 2013

Not quite Los Angeles yet not quite San Diego, Orange County blends the best of Southern California. Orange County is one of the smallest and most densely populated regions of California, but it also contains "Surf City, U.S.A." and possibly the world’s prettiest coastline (not to mention Disneyland!).

As a major hub of business and technology, it should be no surprise that Orange County is at the forefront of incorporating Internet convenience to increase public access to the justice system. Most civil filings must be completed electronically, and the County provides complete access to case information online. Their website also contains a generous Self-Help Center which could help you research your particular issue.

Just as Orange County does not boast a single dominant urban center, its courthouses are numerous and scattered. Knowing which court is appropriate for your particular issue and location is critical to your success, so here is a useful guide to the Orange County court system.
