The Ventura Superior Court has established official court drop-boxes for receipt of payments and other crucial court documents during non-operating hours and to permit the same-day filing of documents deposited before 5:00 p.m.
Official after-hours drop-boxes are located in the following locations:
Ventura Courthouse: Drop-box is located in the Hall of Justice, 2nd floor, outside Room 210
East County Courthouse in Simi Valley: Drop-box is located on the 1st floor outside the Clerk's office on the south side of the building. The drop-box is available on Monday's and Tuesdays until 5:00 p.m. Documents placed in the drop-box before 5 p.m. will be filed as that day but won't necessarily be processed until the following Monday. Note that it will take approximately one week to transport Family Law documents to the Ventura Courthouse for processing.
Juvenile Courthouse in Oxnard: Drop-box is located on the 1st floor in the public hallway across from the clerk's office.
The official Court drop-boxes are available to the public on weekdays between 3:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. Any documents placed in the drop box before 5:00 p.m. will be filed as that day. Anything placed in the drop-box after 5:00 p.m. will be filed as the next business day.
During regular business hours documents should be filed with the appropriate division of the clerk's office. Please visit our Locations & Directions page to find regular business hours for the appropriate division.
