The Charlotte County Clerk of the Circuit Court and County Comptrollers office, along with Clerks statewide, has supported the Florida eFiling Authority in the development of the statewide eFiling portal. As of January 1, 2011, the portal became operational allowing for the eFiling of cases through a single point of entry. In October of 2011 Charlotte County began a pilot program for eFiling with the probate division. The pilot period successfully concluded on December 31st, 2011 at which time probate eFiling was opened to all attorneys. In July 1st, 2012, the Clerk’s Civil Division began accepting efile documents in all divisions (circuit, county, small claims, family, and probate).
