Notice Of Reduction In Clerk’s Office Hours Of Operations

By Staff Reports

(Victor Valley)–The Superior Court of California, County of San Bernardino, intends to reduce the hours of operation for the clerk’s office of the Superior Court. The Court has taken this action due to severe ongoing budget reductions.

The clerk’s office of the Superior Court is presently open 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, except court holidays.

Effective Monday, February 4, 2013, the public service hours for the clerk’s office of the Superior Court will be 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, except court holidays, and except for the clerk’s office for the Juvenile Dependency Court and Juvenile Delinquency Court in San Bernardino.

Effective Monday, February 4, 2013, the public service hours for the clerk’s office for the Juvenile Dependency Court and Juvenile Delinquency Court in San Bernardino will be 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, except court holidays.

Drop boxes are provided to receive documents during the court hours the clerk’s offices are closed.

The decision to reduce the clerk’s office hours of operation was made by the Presiding Judge of the Superior Court of California, County of San Bernardino. There are great financial exigencies facing all governmental entities in California and neither the Superior Court of San Bernardino County nor the California judicial system are exempt from having to deal with these extreme financial circumstances. After careful deliberation, the Presiding Judge has concluded that the changes set forth above constitute the most reasonable and measured way to begin to meet these financial challenges while minimizing the impact on the citizens of San Bernardino County and on the court’s ability to provide equal access.

    Does this refer to the Clerk’s Office in San Bernardino or is there one in Victorville? Maybe all Superior Court Offices throughout California?
