Superior Court of California - County of San Diego: Probate: Probate Imaging

Probate – Central and North County Divisions Imaging

On August 1, 2011, the San Diego Superior Court began an Electronic Filing and Imaging Pilot Program designed to reduce paper filings and storage, facilitate electronic access to civil court files and, in Phase Two, allow remote electronic filing (“E-File” or “E-Filing”) of papers in civil cases.  The ultimate goal of the Program is to create a paperless or electronic file in all civil cases, as well as in other case categories. 

The Program has been expanded to include the probate divisions.  Cases initiated on and after March 1, 2012 are imaged.  In addition, cases filed before this date are being back-scanned and stored in an electronic court file.

*Effective September 3, 2012, all Probate Court operations located at 325 Melrose Avenue, Vista, CA 92081 were consolidated with and relocated to the Central Division Probate Court located at 1100 Union Street, 3rd floor, San Diego CA 92101.
