Commonly Asked Questions

I’m supposed to appear within three days of sentencing. What do I do?

If you are on formal probation, you must report within three days. Otherwise, come in person allowing yourself enough time to complete your hours. Bring your court papers. Bring the fee in exact cash or money order. If it’s your first time, arrive before noon or an hour before closing.

Do I need to bring my court papers?

Yes, we need your paperwork to proceed with the interview.

Can I arrange my service over the phone?

No, you must appear in person.

Can I send someone else to sign up for me?

No, you must appear in person. If you are under 18 years of age, you must bring a parent or guardian with you.

Do I have to pay a fee?

YES. You can contact our office at 714-953-5597 to inquire about the fee you will be charged for your community service.  Please be prepared to pay your fee at the time of registration.  We accept exact cash, money order or ATM/debit (a $1.50 charge will apply with all ATM/debit transactions).

Why do I have to pay a fee to the center to do my hours?

During sentencing, you chose the option of completing community service instead of paying a fine or going to jail. The fee offsets the cost of processing your case at OneOC. It covers the time for the interview, monitoring, follow-up, and reporting back to the courts. OneOC is not compensated by the justice center for these services.

Can I pick the place that I will go to complete my hours?

You will meet with an interviewer who will work with you to determine what placement will best suit your needs based on the court orders and other restrictions.

Can you give me an extension (more time) to complete my service/hours?

No, permission to extend the court deadline is only given by the court BUT we can help. Return to our office and ask for a progress report. Take that report to the court to request an extension.

Can I transfer and do my service someplace else?

YES. If you would like to do that without coming to the office, please mail us a clear copy of your court order with the following:

  • A stamped, self-addressed envelope to:
    Court Referral Program – 1901 East 4th Street #180,  Santa Ana, CA 92705
  • A copy of your court order
  • A letter indicating the city/state you want to be transferred to
  • Your current daytime contact phone number
  • A transfer fee of $60 payable by money order or cashier’s check

Please call 714-953-5597 for additional information.

I finished my hours. What do I do?

Report in person and bring your completed time sheet to the CRP office where you registered (do not fax or mail).

I need to be reassigned to different work. What do I do?

Come in person to our office.  You will be charged a reassignment fee. Please call 714-953-5597 for additional information.

Where can I register to volunteer? What are your hours?
