Legal matters are daunting and completing the process is often tedious and confusing. We are here to take the guess work out of the publication requirements and submissions. All legal notices, including probate (petition to administer estate), notice to creditors, trustee sales, lien sales, city legal ads, summons, including both civil and family summons, name changes, and fictitious business names should be emailed to email@example.com or faxed to 760-274-2352. Once received, we will respond with a quote and information on how to proceed.
Below you will see instructions on how to submit the most common legal notices for publication.
The deadline for all legal notices is 2pm on Tuesday for that Friday publication date.
