How much will my transcript cost?

Once the court reporter contacts you, he or she will tell you the cost of the transcript. They will also discuss how to pay for the transcript, the length of time it will take to complete, and where to pick it up. At this time, you can ask the court reporter any other questions you may have.

 

What if I need my transcript ASAP?

If your transcript request is urgent, mark “RUSH” on the Transcript Request Form. It usually takes a few days to process a request, but we will expedite rush requests. There may be an additional fee for expedited transcript requests; if so, the court reporter will tell you when he or she contacts you.

In some cases, it may not be possible for a reporter to provide a transcript on a rush basis, but every effort will be made to meet the request.

From how far back in time can I request a transcript?

According to state law (Government Code Section 68152 (j)(7)), the court reporters’ notes for criminal cases are destroyed after ten years and notes for civil cases are destroyed after five years. The notes for death penalty cases are never destroyed.


How can I contact the Court if I have a question?
