Fla. (August 7th, 2017) – Polk County residents that need to make
a payment on a court case can save time by going online. The office of Stacy M.
Butterfield, Clerk of Courts and Comptroller, has partnered with Civitek-- a
payment solution, court case management and technical support company
specializing in government services-- to provide MyFloridaCounty, a system
which allows customers to pay online for fees associated with court
cases. The payment website is available now, and can be accessed via the Court
Case Payments link located under the “other services and information” section on
the polkcountyclerk.net home page.
“When I was elected as the
Clerk of Courts and Comptroller I made it a priority to enhance efficiency and
public access by incorporating technology into the services we offer,” Clerk
Butterfield said “I know how important our customers’ time is, and the
MyFloridaCounty system will make court case payments quick and easy. Customers
can save time and go online to make their payment—anytime and anywhere.”
Case types for which online
payments can be made include Appeal from County Court (AP), Circuit Civil (CA),
County Civil (CC), Felony (CF), County Ordinance (CO), Probate/Guardianship
(CP), Criminal Traffic (CT), Domestic Relations (DR), Non-Criminal Infraction
(IN), Misdemeanor (MM), Municipal Ordinance (MO), and Small Claims (SC). The
new system will allow partial payments to accommodate those on a payment plan.
Traffic (TR) cases will
still be paid through the link to the internet site FIS/Link2Gov, located on
the Traffic page of the Clerk’s website.
Users may look up their
cases by name and date of birth, or by uniform case number (UCN). Once the user
has located and selected their case(s), they will be able to select the amount
they wish to pay. The amounts displayed are as current as the date listed on
the screen. Online payments may take 3-5 days to process. A convenience fee of
3.5 percent will be charged to use this payment option, the same fee that is charged
by the front counter credit card system used for payments in person.

or any of our convenient online services, call the Polk County Clerk of Courts
and Comptroller at (863) 534-4000.
