DROP BOX: The Court does not maintain a physical drop box. If you would like your filings to be clocked in for the previous business day, you must file them at the Clerk’s Office BEFORE 9:00 A.M. If it is after 9:00 A.M., no filings will be stamped for the previous business day.
IMPORTANT: The drop box does not extend jurisdictional time limits. See Capone v. Fla. Board of Regents, 774 So. 2d 825 (Fla. 4th DCA 2000). Petitions for original writs, notices of appeal, and notices to invoke discretionary jurisdiction will be clocked in for the date they are received in the Clerk’s Office.
The drop box is available only for pro se filers and attorneys who have sought and have been granted a hardship waiver from electronically filing in eDCA. Please see our information on electronic filing.
