Unlocking Convenience: Embracing the Future with E-Courts

In an era where convenience reigns supreme, the Collier County Clerk of Courts and Comptroller Office stands at the forefront of innovation. Bid farewell to the tedious chore of courthouse visits or transporting paperwork. Step into the future with E-Courts, a realm where technology transforms the courthouse experience to your fingertips. The Clerk’s office extends an array of user-friendly options for the public, featuring e-pay, e-notify, e-filing, and the upcoming additions of e-certify, and e-forms.

In the pursuit of simplicity, we present e-pay as an option for your convenience. No need for traveling on crowded roads or waiting in courthouse lines; e-pay remains a steadfast, secure method for settling fines, fees, and court-related payments. You can now manage transactions from home, preserving your valuable time. This is an optional pathway to hassle-free payments. 

E-notify is your personal court case concierge. Ever worried about missing an important court date? E-notify, your personalized court case reminder service, can help you meet your court requirements. Receive timely notifications about upcoming court dates and crucial deadlines straight to your preferred communication channels. Stay informed on these important requirements. You can find a link to e-notify on our website under Courts or go directly to enotify.flcourts.org.   

E-Filing is your paperless path to successful court processes. Avoid transporting stacks of paperwork with our cutting-edge e-filing system. File your cases and submit documents electronically through our user-friendly E-Portal that can be found through a link at collierclerk.com/court-divisions/e-file/. You may also file directly through the E-Portal at myflcourtaccess.com. This initiative streamlines the entire process and alleviates administrative burdens. Your documents swiftly reach the right hands, ensuring efficient access to filing. 

Get ready for an addition to our service lineup at the Collier County Clerk’s office – E-Certify, soon to offer certified copies at your fingertips, day or night. Revolutionizing the way you obtain certified copies, e-certify eliminates the need to wait for office hours. With this upcoming feature, you’ll enjoy the convenience of purchasing certified copies online, 24/7. Embrace a secure and efficient way to access the legal documentation you need when you need them. Stay tuned for the go-live date for e-certify. 

With this system, you will be able to save precious time by handling court-related matters with just a few clicks, eliminating the need for multiple visits to the courthouse. You can access the E-Courts services from anywhere with an internet connection, providing unprecedented convenience for individuals, attorneys, and legal professionals. The Clerk’s office is working hard to add e-forms to our website. E-Forms will offer packets for uncomplicated cases, allowing you to file them without the requirement for an attorney. Look for these packets on our website during the first part of the new year. E-Courts promotes transparency in the justice system by allowing users to track payments, case updates, and document submissions in real-time.  You can research court cases, foreclosure sales, and court dockets.
