  • Effective January 3, 2022, the Probate Division of the Alameda County Superior Court may allow appearance for hearings to be either in-person or remote, depending on case type, in compliance with CCP Section 367.75. Please see the Alameda Court Local Rule 1.90 for detailed instruction. 

  • All procedural issues must be cleared by 12:00 p.m. two (2) court days prior to the hearing, otherwise the hearing may be dropped at the Court's discretion.  

  • You do NOT need to file an amended Petition to address the issues related to the Petition.  Instead, a verified declaration (MC-030) can be used to address procedural issues related to the filings. If Amended Petition or Amendment to Petition is needed and filed, new Notice of Hearing must be served and re-published if applicable, pursuant to California Rules of Court 7.53.  

  • If you do need a one-time continuance, you may contact the courtroom to obtain a new hearing date:
