  • Over the next several weeks, the Clerk’s office will be moving codes into new categories on the ePortal to comply with the ePortal Authority’s goal of standardization among the 67 Florida counties.  Once the final transition of all codes has been made, we will post a final list on our e-Filing page for filers to use as a guide.  Here are two important changes.

      • The former description of EPORTAL SUMMONS is now PROPOSED SUMMONS TO BE ISSUED.

      • The former description of EPORTAL SUMMONS: DEPENDENCY is now PROPOSED SUMMONS: DEPENDENCY.

      • THEY ARE BOTH LOCATED IN THE DOCUMENT GROUP:  SERVICE DOCUMENTS.

  • The August 19, 2013, redesign of the ePortal allows a filer to select the county prior to determining the filing profile (New Case, Existing Case, Simple e-File with Fees).  Brevard County still uses Simple e-File with Fees as its only filing profile.  Once the county is selected, filers will be prompted to identify whether they are filing a new case or filing in an existing case and the appropriate screen will populate for filing.  To file additional pleadings or cases in the same session, you must now select “Existing Case” or “New Case" from the selections in the upper right-hand corner.

  

  • Original documents are not required as follow up filings except for certain specified documents, wills, codicils, et al. Please see Supreme Court Administrative Order SC 11-399, As Amended (http://www.floridasupremecourt.org/decisions/2012/sc11-399.pdf).

  •  We have reported a problem to our vendor regarding filing status being updated as completed.  If your filing status on the portal is “Pending Filing”, we have accepted and completed your documents within that filing number.  You can review your case on our eFACTs system to see the documents that were processed on our system.
