Frequently Asked Questions


Attorneys or private citizens who wish to purchase a verbatim written record of court proceedings may purchase a transcript from the Court Reporter who reported the proceedings. You may contact the Court Reporter directly by e-mail or calling the Court Reporters Office - Press 4.

The following information will be needed: date of hearing, case number and name, name of judge or courtroom in which the hearing was held. Please specify if you are requesting the entire hearing transcript, just the Order of the Judge, or the specific portion of the hearing you need.

Transcripts are purchased on a per-page basis (folios), as governed by Government Code 69950. The Court Reporter will contact you with an estimate of the cost of the requested transcript. The Reporter will not begin preparation of the transcript until full payment has been received. Any over-estimate amount will be refunded to the paying party.
