Indigent Landlord seeking eviction
by: Staff FALDP

Sherrie,
While this is a great question, so far we haven't been able to find a definitive answer online. Please contact your clerk of court to find out. The clerks are also allowed to offer a payment plan for court filing fees. The following is posted on the Clerk of Court site for Lake County:

Civil Cases

Persons seeking to defer payment of filing fees must be determined indigent by the clerk per guidelines found in Florida Statutes 27.52, 28.246, and 57.081. The clerk has delegated authority to determine that a party is unable to make payment in full per Administrative Order A2004-18.

An Application for Civil Indigence Determination must be completed by a person seeking to defer payment of civil filing fees. The application may be downloaded from the Florida Supreme Court website at www.FloridaSupremeCourt.org or from Florida Clerks of Courts Operation at www.flccoc.org.

When the paperwork is complete and ready to be filed, the person seeking to defer payment will go to the Court Payment Plans Office on the 1st floor of the Lake County Courthouse for the indigence determination. After the determination is made, the applicant may then go to Central Cashiering on the 1st floor of the Lake County Courthouse to file the case.

Per Florida Statute 28.24(26)(c), the clerk will collect a service charge of $25 for setting up a payment plan.
