Electronic Filing (eFiling) Information

Electronic Filing (eFiling) is the service that allows authorized users, or filers, to submit court documents to the Clerk of Court electronically. The Florida ePortal, governed by the Florida eFiling Authority Board, is the gateway to managing your court document submissions to the Clerk of Court. The ePortal provides eFiling capability to filers with a single statewide login.

The Lake County Clerk’s Office is currently accepting electronic filings on new and existing cases for the following case types: Circuit Civil, County Civil, Probate, Guardianship, Domestic Relations, and Juvenile Dependency.

Additionally, using the Simple E-File option at the portal, filings on existing Circuit Criminal, County Criminal, Criminal Traffic, and Juvenile Delinquency cases are also being accepted.

ATTENTION: Effective July 1, 2021, the Florida Supreme Court amended Florida Rule of General Practice and Judicial Administration 2.420 to prevent clerks of court from automatically redacting confidential information found within most Circuit Civil, County Civil, or Small Claims cases. Learn more about the changes.

To use the ePortal, including how to become an authorized user, we have provided the following frequently asked questions (FAQs).
