Case Research Process

Accessing Civil Case Files

The Court makes most civil case records available online at Public Portal - Superior Court of California, County of Stanislaus. 

Harassments can only be viewed at the counter in the civil clerk’s office or on a court kiosk.

Some older, inactive cases are stored at off-site locations. A Research Request Form may be required to access these cases and it can take several days to retrieve the file(s).  A valid, photo ID is required to view physical files.
