Procedure to File a Motion By Mail

by Anonymous from Florida

What is the procedure for filing a motion by mail if you are out of the State of Florida but filing in a Florida County? The dissolution of marriage case is ongoing.

Do I need to produce any form of identification if the case if ongoing, as I am now filing paperwork by mail at the court?

Answer to Florida Court Forms Question

Dear Anonymous,

Instead of filing in person and having the clerk of court witness your signature, you may have the documents notarized by a public notary.

Remember every document that you file with the clerk of the court must also be sent to the other party or their attorney.

I suggest sending documents to the clerk of court via USPS Priority Mail, Delivery Confirmation; and to the other party the same way or via certified mail.
