The Florida Bar News

Progress is being made on completing a self-help process for pro se litigants to file forms through the statewide e-filing portal for the Florida court system.

Palm Beach County Clerk of Court Sharon Bock, a member of the Florida Courts E-Filing Authority, told the authority at its October 6 meeting that reviews have been ongoing by various Supreme Court and Bar committees and commissions. She also expressed some frustration at the length of time it is taking to get the self-help system up and running, but added when it does start, Florida will be at the forefront of helping pro se parties.
