This webpage serves as a resource for Clerk of Court and Comptroller services throughout Florida.

 

In accordance with Governor Ron DeSantis's Executive Order 20-91 and Supreme Court Justice Canady's Administrative Order, Clerks' services are limited to essential items, and staff are working remotely when possible. In-person services are limited. Please contact your Clerk of Court to determine how to access services for your county.

COURT UPDATE: FLORIDA JURY TRIALS ARE CURRENTLY SUSPENDED THROUGH MAY 29, 2020

The Florida Supreme Court has issued a series of Administrative Orders outlining guidelines within the state court system as it confronts the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), which currently suspend all jury trials in Florida's Court System through May 29, 2020.

 

Initially, Florida Supreme Court Justice Charles T. Canady issued an Administrative Order (AOSC20-13) suspending all jury trials in Florida's Court System for a two-week period.

 

On March 24, 2020, Florida Supreme Court Chief Justice Charles T. Canady issued an additional Administrative Order (AOSC20-17), extending the suspension of all jury trials in Florida's Court System through Friday, April 17, 2020.

 

On April 6, 2020, Florida Supreme Court Chief Justice Charles T. Canady issued a third Administrative Order (AOSC20-23) extending the suspension of all jury trials in Florida's Court System once again through Friday, May 29, 2020.

 

Anyone with a summons for jury duty dated between March 16, 2020, and May 29, 2020, is not required to go to court as jury trials during this time have been cancelled. If you are unsure if your summons is impacted by this Order, please call the number provided on the summons or contact your local Clerk of Court.
