Civil Remote Appearances Effective January 3 2023
Effective January 3, 2023, the Imperial Superior Court will provide remote appearance services in civil case types. This expands the previous remote appearance services already being offered for traffic and criminal.
Registration for remote appearance can be done on the Court's website at https://imperial.courts.ca.gov/ under Online Services > Remote Appearances, or by calling the Court at (760) 482-2273.
The Court’s remote appearance fees, as required by Government Code Section 70630 and California Rules of Court, rule 3.672, will be $25.00 (plus credit card transaction fees). There are no remote appearances fees for criminal, traffic, juvenile, restraining orders, any party with a fee waiver, or in any case where filing fees are not required.
No refunds will be given to cancellations with less than two days’ notice or for those who fail to appear for their hearing. A $5.00 fee will be charged for any refund or cancellations requests.
