Civil Case Processing Update

Posted 04/18/2023

Attention Civil Practice Firms and Civil Litigants:

As you may be aware, an unprecedented number of civil lawsuits were filed statewide as a result of the passage of HB 837. In Volusia County, the Clerk's office received from 24 to 60 times more new circuit civil suits per day than normal throughout the surge period as thousands of cases were filed. Our civil department resources are consistently strained by the high volume of small claims filings in Volusia County, and the unexpected rush of HB 837‑related suits resulted in a backlog of cases we've never before experienced.

We have been in communication with the Chief Judge, and have committed every available resource to process new civil suits and subsequent filings as quickly as possible. Our civil staff is working as much overtime as our revenues allow, and we have adjusted staff assignments and processes where able to increase speed.

Be assured it is our highest priority to process the backlog of civil cases and filings and return to normal time frames. We apologize for any inconveniences the delays may cause, and appreciate your understanding and patience with our staff.

We will keep you updated with any useful information or new developments as they arise.


Laura E. Roth
Clerk of Court, Volusia County
