eCertify for Official Records Announcement
Newly installed Hillsborough Clerk of Court & Comptroller Cindy Stuart announced today that certified Official Records are now available to the public online 24 hours a day, 365 days a year at hillsclerk.com.
“This initiative supports the goal I have set to allow our customers the ability to conduct all of their business with my office remotely,” Stuart said. “We intend to continue our efforts to offer digital access to as many online services as the law allows for the convenience of our customers.”
Nearly 60 types of certified Official Records documents are now available online, including marriage licenses, deeds, notices of commencement and divorces. The Clerk’s Office provides approximately 47,000 certified documents annually, all of which until now had to be obtained in person during weekday office hours.
Once a customer purchases an electronic certified copy of a document they have up to 30 days to download and store the document for future use. This allows our customers to maintain their own documents for multiple uses and printing.
This latest initiative is in line with future plans to automate all records, and they come eight months after the Clerk’s Office offered electronic certified copies of court records for the first time. Since then, more than 2,000 electronic certified court documents have been delivered to our customers through hillsclerk.com.
