Orange County Superior Court is announcing that as the Court only has limited services available to the public at this time, we are granting
extensions and expanding our online services to provide enhanced case information. Our goal is simple, ensure that the public we serve is not burdened by court appearances, paying fines or having to show proof of compliance with court ordered programs during these very challenging
In this vein, cases between the above-referenced dates have been granted extensions or had their hearings rescheduled to dates in June and July. Members of the public can view the new due dates for their specific citation on the Court’s Public Case Access page by clicking here.
Compliance dates that were extended include the following:
• Citation Pay or Appear By Date
• Proof of Correction / Community Service
• Monthly Installment Payments
• Traffic School Completion
The Court also discontinued reporting Failure to Appear (FTA) abstracts to the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) and removed any FTA holds that were previously sent to the DMV during the Court’s initial closure period.
Traffic Citations – Filed by Law Enforcement
Upon the filing of a new citation, the Court is automatically adding 60 days to the due date submitted by law enforcement. A Violation Information Notice is mailed to the defendant from the court displaying the extended due date.
The Court deactivated the self-service “Reserve A Court Date” function for the foreseeable future, thus no new hearings can be added to the traffic calendars by the public at this time.
The Court is in the process of rescheduling all traffic hearings set for March 17, 2020 through May 31, 2020 to dates in June and July. Notices are being printed and mailed to defendants to advise them of their new hearing date. Rescheduled hearings include Arraignments, Court Trials and Night Court hearings. Thank you for your patience during this difficult time.
