Hurricane Ian Update 5 - Oct. 3 

We have resumed normal operations today at our Bartow and Northeast Polk offices. Our Lakeland branch is open, but the internet is out and they can only accept cash payments at this time.


Court hearings that were interrupted during Hurricane Ian will be rescheduled. Depending on the case, the scheduling is either handled by the Clerk’s office, your attorney, or Florida’s 10th Judicial Circuit.


The hearings rescheduled by our office will receive a notice by mail of the new court date. If you have an attorney, it’s best to contact them for updated information. You can also view information about your case in our online court records search.


If you are involved in a criminal case, you can register for e-Notify to get alerts about future court dates by text or email.
