Our staff has built professional relationships with the County Clerk’s Office, judges, and court personnel in the Probate Division of the California Superior Court System, the Recorder’s Office, and city officials in many counties throughout the state. We are one of the few bond companies with associates posted directly at the courthouse. This enables us to quickly process and file your bond when timing is critical.

To help you navigate the probate court system, we’ve acquired court information, including contact information, judicial assignments, and court calendars, in one convenient location.
