Florida Rules of Probate Procedure

The Clerk of the Circuit Court is now offering the legal community an opportunity to tour our Probate operations at the Clearwater courthouse. The tours include an overview of document imaging, processing of new cases and the audit of estates and guardianship cases. For further information or to set an appointment, please email us.

    Docket Codes for Attorney Reference:
  • CLAC - Clerk's audit completed
  • CLRC - Clerk's review completed and it is also used for follow ups to different ticks
  • CKWS - Clerk's summary work slip -Audit
  • CWSA - Clerk's summary work slip -Estate
  • STOP - This code was used to verify that the actual documents were in the court file before sending the file out of the office. Since March 2009, Probate no longer creates or utilizes paper files, so this code is no longer used.
