"As a defendant pro per in a Pima County Superior Court, I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your service. Filing is so easy and saves one heck of a lot of paper. I only wish that the older established law firms would get with the program and stop snail-mailing stuff."

What TurboCourt Can Do for You

Fill out & print your court forms TurboCourt asks you questions, and uses your answers to fill out all the forms you need for your family law cases. It charges you a fee to print your forms. Then you take your forms to the court clerk for filing. The court clerk may charge you a “filing fee” to file your forms.

E-filing is available in some counties. That means after you complete your forms online, you may sign your forms electronically, pay your filing fees, and send your forms to the court online. At this time e-filing is available in the San Bernardino County only.

For Other Counties: Take your printed forms to the Clerk’s Office for filing. The Clerk may charge a filing fee. Those filing fees are separate from TurboCourt fees.

Where to file your case The first step is to select the correct county to file your court papers. If you already know which county to file in, select that county from the drop-down menu. (You won’t need the street address of the courthouse.) If you don't know which county to select, read below or ask a lawyer or your county’s Family Law Facilitator.

To START a case about… Divorce: File in the county where you or your spouse has lived for the past 3 months. One of you must also have lived in California for at least 6 months. It does not matter where you got married.

Legal separation: If you have not lived in the county or state long enough to file for divorce, you may file for legal separation by filing papers in the county where you plan on living for the next 3 months. Later when you qualify to file for divorce, you can ask the court to change your request to divorce.

Children – never married parents, first time cases If you and the other parent were never married, and you want to file for custody, visitation or child support for the first time, file in the county where the child is living.

For cases ALREADY STARTED… To file papers for a case that already started, including financial papers, select the county where those papers are from, even if you do not live there. You will need the court case number listed on those papers.

Ask for custody, visitation, support or other orders for an existing court case. Select the county where the court papers are from, even if you do not live there. You will need the court case number listed on those papers.

You cannot use this website to ask to: • Change an existing custody, visitation, support or other court orders for an existing court case.

• Ask for child custody, visitation, or support orders if you and the other parent are married and you do NOT want a divorce or legal separation.

Talk to a family law lawyer or ask your county’s Family Law Facilitator for help.
