Who may file a county civil case?
Any person 18 years or older, and any individual doing business as a company, may file a county civil case. Please be aware that there are no forms available at the Clerk's Office for filing county civil lawsuits. If you choose to represent yourself, you will need to prepare the complaint or petition.

If you do not feel comfortable representing yourself, you may wish to obtain the services of an attorney. You may refer to the Florida Rules of Civil Procedure for information on filing a county civil case.
