TEMPORARY Closure of the Lakeland Office

Front of Lakeland government center with text that reads Lakeland Office Closed Temporarily

Starting May 8, we are TEMPORARILY closing our Lakeland office due to staffing shortages. Court proceedings and jury trials will continue, but the Clerk's service lobby will not be open to customers. 

We will have a drop box available for customers to submit paperwork for eviction, small claims, and traffic cases as well as documents that need to be recorded. All other customers will need to visit us online, by phone, or at the Bartow and Northeast courthouses.

We will resume operations once we have overcome the resource challenges and are able to provide superior service to our community. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience.

Save a trip! Many of our services are available online. Browse our website before your next trip or call to the courthouse.
