Message from Presiding Judge Paul Haakenson
Welcome to the Marin County Superior Courtís website. This website is designed to help carry out the Courtís Mission Ė to ensure fair and equal access to justice, and to serve the public with dignity and respect. I hope that you find the website to be user-friendly, easy to navigate, accurate, and complete. To this end, the website is searchable using common words and phrases, and is written in plain English with minimal legal jargon. The content is also available in Spanish. We hope to answer all your questions through a simple click of your mouse.
In addition to providing specific case information, the material contained in the website includes details about court programs, services, and procedures aimed to help inform the public and prepare litigants before coming to court. The site also includes contact information (phone numbers, and email addresses) organized by subject area and department. The website also serves as a portal and link to other resources including the Judicial Council of California, and various departments in the County of Marin. We also include a variety of links to other helpful websites which provide information on subjects such as how to obtain affordable legal resources and self-help services, and how to access court forms that can be completed online.
I sincerely hope our website helps to make your court experience productive and understandable, and that we are able to eliminate the frustrations that often stem from navigating an unfamiliar bureaucracy. If the website and linked information does not answer your questions, please do not hesitate to let us know how we can better serve you.
Thank you for visiting.
