Zoom – Remote Court Appearances & Hearings

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

More Self-Help Information from the Florida Courts

The information found on this 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.  We can also connect self-representing litigants with low cost legal assistance through our Low Bono program.  These resources will hopefully allow citizens who chose to represent themselves in court-related matters to do so in an accurate, efficient manner.
