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 Locations||Case Types
|A = Alameda / George E. McDonald||F = Family Law|
|B = Berkeley Courthouse||G = General Civil|
|F = Fremont Hall of Justice||P = Probate|
|H = Hayward Hall of Justice||S = 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.
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.
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 = Hayward||PH = Hayward|
|CV = Valley (Livermore/Pleasanton)||PV = Valley (Livermore/Pleasanton)|
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.
