What types of Reports can I Download?

How do I know if the file is new?

Each file has a creation date. The information is updated mostly on a daily basis, but for some types of cases the information is updated weekly or monthly.

Why would I need to know the Report layout?

Report layouts provide the names of the data fields together with the length of each field. This information is needed to effectively and efficiently utilize these files.

Why is the ADD TO BASKET button missing for some reports?

Download reports are generated from case information that has been entered into the Clerk's main computer system for a specific day or timeframe. Each night the Clerk's computer systems are synchronized and case information is updated and a variety of downloadable reports are generated. If no activity is entered for a particular day or timeframe, for example, weekends or holidays, then the report will remain empty. To avoid inadvertent purchases the ADD TO BASKET button has been removed from all empty download reports.

What if the download process fails after I've paid?

An account verification analysis is performed and a credit may be issued. For further assistance, please contact the Public Access Help Desk at (954) 831-5588, or send comments to eClerk@browardclerk.org

What if I downloaded a corrupt file?

Any subscriber may request a credit for corrupt or incorrect data file transactions. An account verification analysis is performed and a credit may be issued. For further assistance, please contact the Public Access Help Desk at (954) 831-5588, eClerk@browardclerk.org

What if I already paid for a file with incorrect data?

While the Clerk of Courts office attempts to ensure that the information made available via the Online Services is accurate and timely, technical issues may arise. If you have either downloaded a product that appears to be out-of-date and/or have had difficulty downloading a product, please contact the Public Access Help Desk at (954) 831-5588, or send comments to eClerk@browardclerk.org
