The Palm Beach County Clerk of the Circuit Court & Comptroller’s Office recently introduced E-Certify, a new service that allows online ordering of electronic certified court documents.
Now customers do not need to travel to one of the clerk’s five offices and instead are able to purchase their electronic certified court documents from anywhere with a smartphone, computer or tablet with an internet connection.
“We are focused on connecting people with our services, in the way that works best for them,” Palm Beach County Clerk & Comptroller Joseph Abruzzo said. “Our new E-Certify service helps our customers skip the trip to the courthouse and purchase certified court documents from any device, wherever they are.”
These documents use advanced encrypted features to produce a secure electronic certified document that includes a unique Clerk of the Circuit Court digital signature. Once purchased, they are delivered within minutes. Documents can be ordered through the eCaseView court records system at www.mypalmbeachclerk.com/ecaseview. Non-certified documents will still be available through eCaseView for free.
Electronic certified copies are $8 per document, which includes a $2 statutory fee plus a $6 service fee. A 3.5 percent payment processing fee will apply to transactions paid by credit or debit cards, PayPal, Google Pay or Apple Pay. Payments made by bank transfer will have a $5 processing fee per document.
