6. How do I register for a law firm administrator account?

FCCC policy requires all law firm administrators to be members of the Florida Bar.

The Law Firm Administrator security allows the user to update the law firm’s profile on the ePortal, reset the law firm’s user password, inactivate user accounts and add user accounts to the law firm. A law firm may consider having more than one administrator to cover leave time, self-audit and manage workload.

For proposed order submissions to the judiciary click here: eCourtesy.  To schedule a hearing, click here: Ex Parte Hearing.  For additional questions to the Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC) call (305) 349-5600.

Please fill out the Clerk of Courts ePortal law Firm Administrator Request, send it to our office and allow up to three working days for processing upon receipt. In the event you are requesting an exemption for your firm, additional processing time may be required. You will be notified via email once your request has been processed.

7.  How do I register as a Law Enforcement Agency?

8.  How much does it cost to register and file?

There is no cost to register for an eFiling account and there is no fee to file documents electronically. However, the statutory filing fees still apply so if you are submitting a new case or a document that requires a fee, there will be a filing fee required in order to submit your document for filing and a statutory convenience fee based on the payment method selected.

9.  Can a Florida registered paralegal obtain an account to file for the attorney they work for?

Currently, the answer is no; however, this is being addressed by the Florida Courts Technology Commission and may be available in a future release.
