Online Court Records

As of October 13, 2023, the documents accepted into court files will be in PDF/A format as required by the Supreme Court of Florida.  Unfortunately, these documents may include hyperlinks, including highly insecure hyperlinks to the Internet.  Embedded hyperlinks in PDF/A documents should be treated with the same caution as hyperlinks in any document or webpage containing hyperlinks, particularly those which link to external websites. The Clerk does not vet any hyperlinks, nor any embedded document intelligence elements, for accuracy, legality, or content, and is not liable for any damage caused by using such documents or hyperlinks.

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.

The Clerk's Office makes no warranty or guarantee concerning the accuracy or reliability of the content at this site or at other sites to which we link. Assessing accuracy and reliability of information is the responsibility of the user. The user is advised to search on all possible spelling variations of proper names in order to maximize search results.

The information and images may not reflect updates, changes, or rulings that have not yet been posted to the database. Please note that the information may be partial.

The court records available via the internet vary depending on the type of case and the year in which the case originated. Additionally, access to the court records is limited in accordance with Administrative Orders issued by the Florida Supreme Court, and by the user's role, the case type, and the content of the document to be viewed. Generally, cases prior to 2007 do not yet have document images associated therewith, with criminal traffic having no images earlier than 2009 and civil traffic having no images earlier than 2013. As the retention period for some older cases was met prior to imaging, some case files may have been destroyed in accordance with state retention guidelines prior to being imaged; therefore, no images will be available for those cases. Due to confidentiality requirements, only a few document images from many cases will be instantly available initially, but most will be available upon request with any confidential information being removed through a redaction process.
