The Clerk has attempted to make searching the Alachua County online courts department records index as easy as possible. You should only enter the criteria by which you wish the computer to search. You do not need to enter data into every field.
If searching by name, enter last name in the first box and the first name and middle initial in the second box.
If you are searching by company name, enter the company name in the "Company" field.
Date Filed From:
The beginning date defaults to the earliest date of records online, but you may change this date to any date through the present.
The ending date defaults to the most recent documents. You may change this to any date to restrict your search results.
You may enter the case number to search by (Do not include the "01" County Code Prefix). However, be aware that in 1999 the new uniform case numbering system required by the Florida Supreme Court was implemented in Alachua County. The use of old case numbers may not provide the information requested depending on the year the case was filed. If the case you are looking for by case number is not found, please use the following conversion and notes to inquire and you may be more successful in your search:
Old 1997-1234-CA is now 1997CA1234
Note I: Family cases that were formerly CA cases are now DR cases.
(dissolution of marriage or divorce, child support, paternity, name change, etc.)
Example: 1997-1234-CA may be 1997DR1234
Note II: Probate, guardianship, trusts, wills, etc. cases are now CP cases.
Note III: Mental Health cases are now MH cases.
Note IV: Small Claims (SC), landlord/tenant (LT) and county court (CC) are now all CC cases.
Note V: Summary proceeding (SP) cases are now SC cases.
You may enter the case type (click on arrow for a drop down menu to select a document type) to search by. The system will only list 100 records using this method.
Party or Status Searches:
These are very limited searches and require that you enter additional information (ie. case number, name, etc.) for them to operate.
