Superior Court of California - County of San Diego: Small Claims: Small Claims Locations
Where to File a Claim

The plaintiff must file the claim in the correct court location or the court may dismiss the case. San Diego Superior Court Rules govern the venue of cases. To find the proper court location, click here.

The proper court location may be any of the following:

  • The zip code where the defendant lives or the defendant corporation or other entity has its principal place of business.
  • The zip code where the person or personal property was injured or damaged.
  • The zip code where the defendant signed the contract or where the contract was breached.
  • The zip code where the buyer resided at the time of entering into a retail installment account, or contract on a motor vehicle finance sale.
The booklet How to File a Small Claims Case includes a venue table which lists San Diego zip codes and the corresponding court locations.
