CLERK OF COURT & COMPTROLLER
HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, FLORIDA
The Accounting Department has a fiduciary responsibility related to funds collected and disbursed by court order or other legal authority. One area of special interest involves the Registry of the Court. The Registry holds funds (monies) by the authority of the Florida State Statutes or by Order of the Court, pending further action by the court. A signed Court Order is required before funds can be deposited into or withdrawn from the Court Registry.
Personal checks cannot be accepted for deposits into the court registry. You may either pay in cash, with a cashier's check or money order; which should be made payable to Clerk of Circuit Court.
The Hillsborough County Clerk of the Circuit Court strives to make payments quickly and accurately, within the timeframe set by statute and court orders. The guidelines below are provided to help you understand when to expect a check from our office.
