The Orange County Clerk’s Office Mental Health Division maintains the court records when proceedings are held to determine the capacity or incapacity of an adult. If you are concerned for the safety of a family or friend who is suffering from mental illness or substance abuse, you may file a petition for a Baker Act or Marchman Act at their office.
