Remote Video Appearances

Remote Video Appearances

Remote video appearances are authorized for criminal and civil cases (see below). 

NOTE:  When appearing remotely, participants must fully display their first and last names.

Effective July 1, 2022, and pursuant to AB 199, remote video appearances for criminal cases will continue; however, certain limitations apply (see the Zoom Appearance Request link below for more information).

The Madera County Superior Court is utilizing "Zoom" as the preferred remote appearance platform.

Additional information related to remote video proceedings in civil cases:  

Effective January 1, 2022, California Rule of Court  (CRC) 3.672 implemented specific procedures for parties appearing remotely in civil matters (including juvenile dependency and juvenile delinquency matters).  The Madera County Superior Court will adhere to CRC 3.672 for remote civil proceedings.  It is important to note that CRC 3.672 does not impact remote appearances in criminal cases. 

Please fill out the Zoom Appearance Request Form above, and see below for the forms that may need to be submitted to the court in response to CRC 3.672 and remote civil proceedings:
