Our courthouse and Orange Park Branch location are open to provide services to the public. You may choose to come to our offices for in-person service or, instead, take advantage of our many online services.
As of 7/1/21, the Florida Supreme Court made changes to the rules governing the redaction of private information in certain court records. Please make sure you are informed and following the new protocols.
As a self-represented litigant, you may be directed by your assigned judge’s judicial assistant to attend a court appearance via the Zoom app/website. If so, you’ll receive directions regarding date, time and log-in link directly from the judicial assistant.
Zoom helps organizations – like court systems – bring people together in an interactive online environment. It is an easy, reliable cloud platform for video, voice, content sharing, and chat runs across mobile devices, desktops, telephones, and room systems.
We encourage you to use online resources instead whenever possible. Online Services – Instructions & Links
Turbo Court Links
Disclaimer: Upon completion of any Turbo Court form, you will need to print and submit the form to our office by mail or by bringing it to the Clerk of Court’s Civil Department in the Clay County Courthouse in Green Cove Springs.

The information found on this statewide Self-Help Center page is provided for citizens who choose to be self-represented litigants. A self-represented litigant is a person (party) who advocates on his or her own behalf before a court, rather than being represented by an attorney. These litigants are also known as pro se litigants and are most often involved in Family court matters. The right of a party to a legal action to represent his or her own cause has long been recognized in the United States. While Clerk’s Office personnel are not permitted to provide legal instruction or advice to citizens, our office can provide information on the resources available to a self-represented litigant.
