Evin Whitfield, 12, made a special delivery of more than 200 stuffed animals to the Lamoreaux Justice Center in Orange. Every child who is adopted at a Court proceeding receives a stuffed animal to commemorate the newly formed family. The adoptee's siblings receive one, too. At a ceremony attended by Family Law Judges and Commissioners, court staff, and Evin’s family, Judge Clay M. Smith thanked Evin for collecting and donating the stuffed animals and taking the initiative to “make things happen.” Read more on the Court's news release, http://bit.ly/1RrCvu0.

The Court successfully launched the use of a new case management system to manage family and juvenile cases. It is the latest step in the on-going effort to move to an all-electronic court record that provides better service to litigants and the public at reduced public cost. All-electronic court records are already in use for traffic, criminal, civil, probate, and mental health cases and, as a result, the Court has reaped vast rewards in organizational strengths and efficiencies. Read the Court’s news release HERE.
The Court accepts payments for criminal, traffic, and collection cases at the Superior Court Service Center at 27573 Puerto Real, Mission Viejo, 92691. Payments can be made at the public windows only on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 8:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Additional services are available Monday through Friday.

Several Orange County residents have recently reported receiving a phone call or voicemail from an individual claiming to be a law enforcement officer asking for payment to clear up a warrant that had been issued because the resident did not appear for jury service. These calls are fraudulent and have no connection to the Orange County Superior Court. Anyone receiving a phone call from someone demanding payment for an outstanding warrant should report it immediately as a crime to their local law enforcement agency.
Also, please note that Orange County Superior Court’s Jury Services staff does not ask past, current, or prospective jurors for information regarding credit card numbers, bank account information, or Social Security numbers. Please do not provide this type of information to anyone claiming to be associated with Jury Services.
The Self-Help Services website now has an interactive Self-Help Small Claims Online Interview available. The online interview is a free screening tool that self-represented litigants can use to quickly access specific information for their legal problem. The online interview is provided as a public service and is created as a self-guiding tool to services, resources, and options for help with a legal matter. It is not a tool that provides legal advice.
Based on the interviewees’ responses, the online interview produces a summary of information that can include court procedures, forms, and service referrals which may take the place of litigation. The online interview provides links to many alternative services.
