Hillsborough County Intends to Implement e-Filing by March 2012

Members of the Florida Bar have long been making the case for e-filing, or the ability to file documents through the internet rather than filing a physical copy with the clerk of the court.  E-filing holds the promise of reducing the time and costs associated with interacting with the clerk.  The Florida Supreme Court authorized e-filing through the Florida Court’s e-filing portal, which became active for some counties on January 1, 2011.

According to Hillsborough County Administrative Order S-2011-051, the Hillsborough clerk of the court is targeting March 2012 to enroll in Florida’s e-filing system.  Hopefully, other local counties, including Pasco, Pinellas, Hernando, Polk, Manatee, and Sarasota, will join the e-filing portal soon.  Though some of these counties have implemented e-filing in some divisions, it is my understanding that none of them have yet implemented e-filing through the Florida Court’s portal for family law cases.
