Public Notice

We are pleased to announce that pursuant to Supreme Court Administrative Order AOSC 16-14, the Clerk is now authorized to make many public court document images available for online viewing. This Order specifies the security level permissions of various users depending on the case and document type. Cases and documents made confidential by statute or court order are excluded.

The Clerk’s new Official Records application is fully implemented and we hope you are benefitting from this new mobile-friendly technology. We will discontinue offering the “old” Official Records application on Monday, December 4th. If you have bookmarks to the original Official Records Document Inquiry, you will need to remove them and start using the new inquiry after that date.

Case Inquiries

Case searches are available for Circuit Civil, County Civil, Family Law, Probate, and Criminal case records. To view specific, detailed case records for all case types, use the Case Inquiry to search with Name or Case Number data. In addition to case detail, you will now see many public document images displayed automatically on the docket tab within the case. Some documents must be requested and reviewed by a Clerk before they can be released for online viewing. Of course, some case types and documents are nonpublic and may not be viewed.

Also, you may apply to receive login information for increased viewing permissions. These applications require a notarized signature and other information pursuant to the Supreme Court Order. To register for additional online viewing, see the options on the Request Online Viewing page.

To view general court schedules, case events for specific case types, officials or locations use the Event Inquiry (non-criminal) or the Criminal Inquiry.

Non-Criminal Reports

Daily reports are generated for new suits filed in Circuit and County cases. Daily files remain available for approximately 30 calendar days.

Weekly Foreclosure reports are also available for new foreclosure suits filed in Circuit and County cases. These reports remain available for approximately 30 calendar days.

The Probate Preliminary Monthly Report is generated on the 7th of every month and contains a listing of Estates filed during the prior month which are reported to the State of Florida Department of Revenue. Access to the Probate Preliminary Monthly Report requires Subscriber Access.

Criminal Reports

Criminal Arrest Information is available daily consisting of 24 Hour Arrest data of individuals arrested and booked into the Branch Jail during the previous 24 hours. This report contains a format key at the first record and consists of the initial booking, charge and violation information. Daily files remain available to download for approximately fourteen calendar days and viewable using basic text viewers.

Citation Information

Citation Violations Information for Volusia County is available from January 1, 1990 to the present. Records consist of detailed citation, statute information, violation status and account information for non-criminal traffic violations. Searches are generally performed using last name and first name, or citation identification.

Official Records

Official records consist of documents relating to property transactions (such as deeds and mortgages), court-ordered judgments (such as restitution for victims of crime), marriages, divorces, power of attorney and probate (wills and estates.) 

The Clerk of Circuit Court is pleased to offer Internet access to the Official Records of Volusia County. The Official Records includes the Index and images of recorded documents from April 4, 1988 to present. 

The records available on-line consist of RELEASED records only. The term "released" means the records have been recorded, indexed, verified and released for general public viewing. Please note there may be records that have been recorded but are not yet completely indexed, verified or imaged and therefore are not available on-line.

Tax Deeds

Tax Deed Information records consist of current properties available for sale at the next Courthouse Tax Deed Auction. Lands Available for Taxes lists current land where there are no bidders during Tax Deed Auctions.
