I am petitioner in a paternity case in Kern County Superior Court. I live in Washington state, but the child lives in Bakersfield with his mother. I recently had a court hearing (Nov 14) and have yet to receive a copy of the orders. I was told by the court that they would be mailed to me. I asked the facilitator if I could access my records (or at least the minutes and docket list) if I filed a noa pro se. I was basically told that I had to go in, in person. Does anyone know if there is a court system comparable to the Pierce County Linx system in Kern County that would allow me to access my case? I am getting nowhere by phone and it doesn't seem fair that the respondent would get access to files that I don't.
I think you'd get a better response if you reposted this question with a Kern Co. zip code so practitioners there can give you an answer.

Kern County Superior Court does not offer internet access to court files and is not required to. I have attached a link to the Courts web page regarding obtaining access to the Court records.

You really need to speak with a CA attorney regarding this matter. WA lawyers will most likely not be your best resource. Sorry, and best of luck.
