Question Concrete & block footing in California

I am adding on to my raised foundation house, I would like to do a concrete & block footing, but I am getting mixed stories on how thick the concrete should be poured. I would like to pour a footing 12" wide by 6" Deep, then use masonary block to build the foundation wall. For an over all hieght of 30". Is this to california building code standards?

If you run two parallel rebars in the footing, then 6" x 12" is standard and more than adequate. However I don't know about California depth requirements or where block is allowed...

Our exsisting footing is 6" deep by 12" wide concrete then masonary block on top, this is why I was going to do it the same. I do plan on running parallel rebar, plus rebar through the block and filling the cavities with concrete. The problem being that I want to do this to California code standards and I'm not sure if my exsisting footing is just out dated?
