Osceola County Clerk of Court Armando Ramírez announced this week the expectation to reopen all services at the Clerk’s Office and Osceola County Courthouse on June 1. The reopening date was determined “by taking in consideration extensions of the postponement and cancellation of certain court proceedings in orders issued by the Florida Supreme Court of Florida and the Ninth Judicial Circuit of Florida,” Ramirez’s office said in a release.
On Tuesday, Ninth Circuit Chief Judge Donald Myers issued a temporary order, extending the cancellation of most proceedings that were scheduled between March 16 and May 29 due to COVID-19.
A 60-day extension for all criminal and traffic payments that were due between March 13 and May 22 continues in effect, however the Clerk’s Office is unable to extend due dates for court-ordered payments.
While the Clerk’s Office remains closed to the public, it continues to provide some essential services, such as:
Traffic School Election: customers may call 407-742-3583 to make a traffic school election or make a credit card payment.
Criminal Payment Plans: available for customers that cannot make payments in full with a $25 Administrative Partial Payment Plan fee due when the first payment is made. Customers that can benefit from this service may call (407) 742-3583 for assistance.
