E-Filing FAQ – After eFiling, do I need to send follow-up copy to Broward County Clerks Office?

On the Portal and in the confirmation emails, you may see this message:

Please remember, rule 2.525, Rules of Judicial Administration, requires that any document filed electronically must be followed-up and filed with the Clerk as a paper document, with original signatures, during the first 90 days of eFiling. Some counties have completed the 90-day paper document follow-up period and other counties have received exemption from this rule. Please verify with the filing county as to their current paper document follow-up requirements.

Please note that Broward County is well outside of the first 90 days of eFiling. This 90 days refers to the CLERKS time of eFiling – not YOUR time of eFiling.

Please see the following FAQ from Broward’s Website:

Do I have to follow-up my eFiling with a paper filing?

Follow-up paper filing is not required for eFiling.  Certain documents have to be deposited in their original format,  such as Wills, Death Certificates, affidavits, deeds and mortgages.
