Before You Visit


Review the Checklist


External image of the Orange County CourthouseGetting a marriage license or paying a traffic ticket is not something that most of us do on a daily basis, so we want to make your experience with the Clerk’s Office as efficient and pleasant as possible. 

With this in mind, we have compiled a checklist for you to review before coming to do business with us. You never know, you may discover that you can pay that ticket online or at a partner location and avoid a trip to the Clerk’s Office altogether.

You are required to go to the division in the courthouse where your case originated and present valid photo identification to request the physical file. For example, if your case is criminal in nature, you must go to the Criminal Division to request to review the file. The same applies for Civil, Family, Probate/Mental Health and Traffic cases.
