COURTS SEARCH


You have reached the search page for Leon County court cases. If you are interested in following the status and events in cases, being able to view docket entries online is a great service.

There have been many changes over the years, driven by court rules, court cases, and Florida Statutes, as to what court records can and cannot be viewed online. Most recently, Florida Supreme Court administrative orders AOSC14-19, 15-18, and 16-14 drive changes on our website - what can be viewed and how documents and cases can be accessed and by whom.

Search returns on our public website will include complete case information for civil, criminal and traffic cases for which we have electronic records, except for cases that are confidential and exempt from public records law. There are many search criteria that can be used; once you select a case from a search return, you will be able to view the progress docket entries and other information on the case.

Further, while viewing a case, you may check the "Request Document" checkbox located beside progress docket entries to request a copy of that document. Keep in mind:

  • Not all progress docket entries have images associated with them.
  • Older cases may have some or no images because we were not scanning at that time.
  • Still older cases may no longer exist in paper forms because the files have been destroyed pursuant to Fla. R. Jud. Admin. 2.430.

Please note whether there is an image associated with the progress docket entry before requesting the document; if there is no image, there will be a statutory $1.00 per page charge for our office to provide a scanned or paper version of the document. We will review the documents requested to insure that they have been redacted, and will contact you to advise of any charges. Once you have paid, we will complete your request and email the documents to you, or you can arrange for pickup in our office.

If you wish to view and obtain documents on cases, you may register for access to the Clerk’s Secure Website by clicking here: Complete an application for viewing, sign it, have it notarized (notarization portion will not show online but will be on the form when you print), scan it, and return it to us at clerk_judicial@leoncountyfl.gov
