The Florida Courts has established specific guidelines to provide the public with electronic viewing of court records, indexes, and dockets as well as non-confidential document images through the Broward County Clerk of Courts website.
Access to all electronic and other court records shall be governed by the Standards for Access to Electronic Court Records and Access Security Matrix. Florida's law restricts or may prohibit electronic access to some cases, documents, and information based on the record and user type. For more information, refer to the most current version on the Florida Courts Website.
Anonymous Public/Case Search users may view all court records except those that are expunged or sealed, automatically confidential under rule 2.420(d)(1), Fla, R. Gen. Prac & Jud. Admin., or made confidential by court order, without having to register. As governed by the Florida Family Law Rules of Procedure, Florida Rules of Juvenile Procedure, or Florida Probate Rules, pursuant to s. 28.2221(5)(a), F.S., access to confidential electronic court documents does not exist.
Attorneys may gain secure access to non-confidential electronic court documents through a username and password by a written notarized agreement as outlined in the Standards for Access to Electronic Court Records and Access Security Matrix.
Registered Users may gain secure access to non-confidential electronic court documents through a username and password as outlined in the Standards for Access to Electronic Court Records and Access Security Matrix.
Commercial Purchasers of Bulk Records may gain secure access through username and password by written notarized agreement. The commercial purchaser gatekeeper is responsible for maintaining an authorized user list. The Commercial Data API and Advanced Search services do not provide access to electronic images of court records.
Please Note: Not all court progress dockets will have electronic case records available for viewing, especially older case records not electronically filed.
