I am assuming since she died in LA County that the will was filed
there as well. Copies of documents are available in one of two
places: the district court where it was filed or at the LA Superior
"To order documents from the Archives, you will need to know the case
number, names of the parties and what document you want copied. If you
have the names of the parties and the year the case was filed, but no
case number, and it was filed in 1965 or earlier you may call the
index clerk at (213) 974-1378. If the case was filed after 1965, call
the index clerk at (213) 974-5171.
--You may request the copies in person at the Archives, 222 N. Hill
St., Rm. 212, Los Angeles, between 8:30 a.m. and 4:10 p.m. weekdays,
--You may mail requests to County Records Center, 222 N. Hill St., Rm.
212, Los Angeles, CA 90012. Enclose a check, payable to the Los
Angeles Superior Court, to cover the cost of documents, figuring a
copy of 57 cents per page, and a certification fee of $6 per document.
If the document is a final judgment of divorce, add $10 for the
certification fee. If the copies are for official use in another
country, there is an additional $20 exemplification fee. If you do not
know the number of pages or the cost for copies, write below the long
dollar line on your check the phrase: "Not to exceed $30." The clerk
processing the order will fill in the actual amount and return a
receipt with the copies. Please enclose a self-addressed, legal size
envelope. Allow 10-14 working days for processing."
