Beginning Monday, the clerk's offices at the Stanislaus County Superior Court's two downtown Modesto locations will be open an extra hour, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Those locations are:
The main courthouse at 800 11th St., which houses the criminal and family law divisions.
The court's civil, small claims and probate division at 801 10th St.
The traffic division, at 2260 Floyd Ave. in Modesto, will remain open to the public from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. The change comes a year after the court was forced to reduce office hours because of budget constraints and employee furloughs. Frequently asked questions by department and a searchable case index can be accessed 24 hours a day at www.stanct.org.
