The Court does not maintain a physical drop box. If you would like your filings to be clocked in for the previous work 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.
