The Florida Court Clerks and Comptrollers Association have provided the public with the ability to electronically filing court documents to the Florida Courts E-filing Portal. Currently, about 60,000 Florida Bar members are able to file through the portal. Members of the public who are pro se, or proceeding without an attorney, should find this option helpful.
When an individual reaches the website, they must register, scan their documents and pay an equivalent clerk filing fee like they would if filing physically at the clerk's office. The system will send the documents to the clerk's office electronically, where the submission will be accepted. Some records, however, such as a will, where an original is required to be on file, must still be filed in person until an electronic verification system can be put in place.
