Case Number Format:

Effective January 1, 2003, a new case number format was implemented. The prefix indicates the location at which the case was filed, followed by the case type, followed by the year filed, followed by a six-digit case number.

Case LocationsCase Types
A = Alameda / George E. McDonaldF = Family Law
B = Berkeley CourthouseG = General Civil
F = Fremont Hall of JusticeP = Probate
H = Hayward Hall of JusticeS = Small Claims
R = Rene C. Davidson County Courthouse
V = Gale / Schenone Hall of Justice
W = Wiley W. Manuel Courthouse / Allen E. Broussard Justice Center

Example: A Family Law case filed in 2003 at the Rene C. Davidson County Courthouse would be numbered RF03012345, and a General Civil case filed in 2003 in Fremont would be numbered FG03054321.

Previous Format:

Case numbers for cases filed in DOMAIN consist of ten numbers: the year in which the case was filed, followed by a six-digit number.

If your case number is less than 6 numbers, you must add leading zeros to use DomainWeb.
Example: Case number 1234, filed in 1998, would be entered as 1998ии1234.

Converted Cases:

Case numbers for cases filed before DOMAIN was implemented consist of alphabetic characters followed by a six-digit number. Please note that the alphabetic characters must be entered as upper case letters.

Civil Cases:Probate Cases:
C- = Oakland (Hyphen is required)P- = Oakland or Fremont (Hyphen is required)
CH = HaywardPH = Hayward
CV = Valley (Livermore/Pleasanton)PV = Valley (Livermore/Pleasanton)

Example:

If the Civil case number is C-833320-5, enter C-833320. If the Probate case number is P-202238-5, enter P-202238.

Note that the check digit (the final hyphen and last digit), are not entered as part of the case number.
