Change to eFiling in Volusia County

Posted 09/18/2023

Please be aware that the Volusia County Clerk of Court will transition to the "complex" eFiling process on the Florida Courts eFiling Portal during the Portal's next release date, currently anticipated to be on October 28, 2023.

While we have historically chosen to offer simple eFiling for the ease of our filers, the need for statewide data gathering from the ePortal has necessitated this change. Though filers will be required to enter more data when eFiling once the transition to complex eFiling occurs, a positive effect is that civil and family filers will no longer need to submit a separate cover sheet.

Complex eFiling is currently used in many other counties, so you may already be familiar with the process. There are also FAQ's, in-depth video trainings, and other guidance materials about complex eFiling available on the ePortal website at this link:

We appreciate your understanding about the upcoming change.
