Brilliant illustrated flow-chart by Margaret Hagan:
Question for our attorney readers: Are you having trouble with e-filing?
Ever since the switch, I have had numerous delays with the clerk processing basic matters. For instance, in one recent case in Miami-Dade, it took the Clerk of Court 12 days to issue Summons. I have seen similar delays in Pinellas and in Orange County. The time it takes to get clerk’s defaults entered has also risen significantly. In a few cases, e-filed documents seem to be stuck in e-purgatory – the website reports that a new Complaint or other filing has been pending for weeks without the clerk accepting it for filing.
If you have been having trouble with e-filing, let us know in the comments.
