Breaking News from the Court 

We are excited to announce that the Superior Court of California, County of Alameda Civil Clerks’ Office hours will be extended from 2:30 p.m. until 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday beginning October 1, 2014.  This pilot program will be in effect until the end of the year at which time it will be re-evaluated.

The official announcement from Arlene Junior, Director, Civil Division:

“In an effort to continually improve customer service and reduce wait times, I am proud to announce extended customer service hours for the Civil Division on a piloted basis.  The pilot will begin on Wednesday, October 1, 2014 and will run through December 31, 2014.  By extending service hours, we hope to give our customers more flexibility to conduct business with the court.”

The Court’s Civil Division handles cases involving a dispute between two or more parties over an injury, their rights, or their obligations.  The Civil Division handles non-criminal cases including family, juvenile, probate, and small claims cases.
