Clerk of Court May Close Doors for Hours Each Week After Budget Cut

Clerk may close doors for hours each week after budget cut

Facing a nearly $2 million budget cut, the Orange County Clerk of Courts is warning that processing delays and reduced hours may soon be on the horizon.

“We’re looking at all of the options,” said Leesa Bainbridge, a courts spokeswoman.

Legislation signed this week by Gov. Rick Scott cut clerks’ budgets across the state about 7 percent, Bainbridge said, including $1.9 million from the Orange clerk.

As a result, the office is looking into closing its doors to the public a few hours a week. That time may be necessary for clerk’s employees to catch up with backed-up case files, she said.

The funding cuts are also expected to result in processing delays, officials said, with the biggest impact on civil cases, such as foreclosures and child-support proceedings.

    In my case there is a certain clerk of courts who should be fired in Brockton Housing Court. She knows who she is and the unethical actions she is guilty of!

    Where will the office be closed?

    More importantly —I need to ask the blog host–whoever posted the info on the IBANEZ house legal costs —-there was a 2nd loan referred to in that trust —for $900,000 —with something approaching $800,000 legal fees———–please advise “what state was that 2nd loan in?” This could be very important.

    Please let me know

      One of the County Clerks who should resign is the one from Miami-Dade County Florida, This genteman has not expressed any opinion in regards to all of the frauds committed in his administration he only relies upon the support of some millionaires that alway get around when it comes his election. There are properties which have reported to him, belonging to them, that are not in the records to be able to collect Real Estate Taxes. Could you imagine this?
