Public Records Available per Supreme Court Order
On June 17th the Flagler County Clerk of the Circuit Court & Comptroller will allow records viewing. The Public will now have the capability to view court records online including the following court types: County and Circuit Civil, County and Circuit Criminal & Probate. This unprecedented capability is due to Florida Supreme Court Order 15-18.
This office has been on the cutting edge of electronic initiatives since Clerk of Court Gail Wadsworth’s promise to allow people to do business with her office “on-line and not in-line”. In July 2014 her office was recognized for becoming virtually paper free with the advent of a paper on demand courts process. Wadsworth’s office offers their continued commitment to providing online viewing of all records in compliance with AOSC 15-18, while protecting constituency privacy and confidentiality.
