The Office of the Clerk is responsible for the management of all case files and the progress of cases through the Court. Any questions concerning the Court's procedures or the status of a particular case pending before the Court should be directed to the Clerk's Office. Contact may not be made with the individual judges of the Court or their personal staff regarding cases.

All appeals and petitions for original writs filed with the Court are governed by The Florida Rules Of Appellate Procedure that are promulgated by the Supreme Court of Florida. When a new case is received and acknowledged, the office of the Clerk disseminates a Notice To Attorneys And Parties (revised December 2013) that highlights frequent inquiries made regarding the prosecution of an appeal or petition submitted to the Court. Moreover, the Notice is updated whenever an amendment is made to the appellate rules by the Supreme Court.
