Senate Bill 1718 increased the filing fees for probate, circuit civil, and cases involving real property, effective 06/01/2009. These fees are sent to the State Department of Revenue, and the increase is for the benefit of state agencies and the state court system. The Clerk's Office does not receive monies from the increase in filing fees. For more information on this bill, visit www.flsenate.gov.
