Mandated E-Service for Florida Civil Filings as of September 1, 2012

The Florida Supreme Court has required e-service in Florida Civil cases by September 1.  The change-of-date order is here.  The underlying order is here.

Confused?  Here’s sources of information so you can prepare your firm over the next month.

The Florida Bar News had these relevant articles:  “Court Sets E-filing, E-Service Deadlines,” “The Changing World of Electronic Courts,”  and “Commonly Asked E-Filing Questions.”

The Palm Beach Bar issued this e-Newsletter on the topic.

The Florida Courts E-Filing Portal is here.

The Florida Courts’ Technology Page has some FAQs and other info here.

For information specific to your county / circuit, considering googling “e-filing [your county/circuit” or visiting the court’s page.

Better still, try YouTube for a visual tutorial.  The Florida Clerks have their own channel and overview video.  A YouTube search will likely reveal others’ advice.

Our friends at The Florida Legal Blog even came up with an online email template, here.

Finally, here’s a powerpoint developed by the Florida Bar entitled, “Service by Email and Efiling.”
