Clerk Forms

Important Notice Regarding Court Forms

These forms are provided at no cost as a courtesy to our customers. We encourage electronic filing (efiling) of all court-related forms for the efficiency of all concerned. For efilers, there are no trips to the courthouse, looking for parking, etc.; and for our office, we can process the work faster because of automated processes.

We encourage all efilers to visit and click on the Help tab for assistance in efiling; the site provides Frequently Asked Questions, manuals, and videos. If you have not registered for an account, you can do so on the site. When you are ready to efile in Leon County, make sure to read the News Feed at the top for local practice items like proposed orders.

Attorneys: Civil efiling became mandatory in April 2013, and criminal efiling became mandatory in October 2013.

Self-Represented/Pro Se Litigants: Since June 2014, the statewide efiling portal permits pro se litigants to efile.

Law Enforcement, Mental Health Professionals, Process Servers, Mediators, and Court Reporters: In October 2014, the portal will provide access to efiling for this group.
