What are the asset limits for a person applying for indigent status when involved in a Florida civil case? Can someone own two vehicles and still qualify for indigent status?

Sort of a mystery

As to the limits to qualify for indigent status, here in Highlands County anyway, it isn't possible for us to provide you with that answer. When we have inquired on behalf of a customer, we've been told each case is different. Many factors are taken into consideration, including the filer's income and normal expenses, if there are children involved, and also any assets. And, of course, the present poverty line established by the government is the actual starting point. It would be in your best interest to go directly to the Clerk of Court in your city and ask them, since there are so many variables. By law you cannot be charged for the answers to your inquiry.
