Name Searches and Records Requests

Requirements for Name Searches and Records Requests

There are different types of record searches and name searches that can be requested by individuals, search companies, businesses, or government agencies. Each service performed by the court requires a fee that needs to be paid before the name search or copying of records can occur.

The Mono Superior Court does not have an online search engine that allows for access to the court’s case management system for Name Searches and Records. All search requests and copying are performed by a clerk or staff member employed by the Mono County Superior Court.

A name search requires the person’s full legal name (and any aliases), date of birth, and, if possible, a driver’s license number.

Record requests without a case or docket number will be charged a search fee in order to locate the file to make copies.  

When making a Records or Name Search Request, please be as specific as possible and send a payment for services with the request.

  • A $15 Search Fee by Name.
  • $.50 per page Copy Fee. The court will provide the total amount due AFTER the request has been made for the SPECIFIC documents needing copying.
  • Search Request credit card payment form (accepted via fax only). /media/376

Requests can be made in person at the Mammoth Lakes or Bridgeport branches, by mail at Mono County Superior Court, Attn: Searches P.O. Box 1037, Mammoth Lakes CA  93546 or email at searches@mono.courts.ca.gov.

California Superior Courts cannot charge other governmental agencies for civil court record searches and record copies. However, California Government Code §70633(c) and §70633(b), gives California Superior Courts the option to charge other governmental agencies for searching, copying and certifying copies of court criminal records. The Superior court of California for Mono County has opted to not charge other governmental entities for searching, copying and certifying court criminal records pursuant to the aforementioned Government Code sections.
