Re: Certificate of Good Standing
You must include the following information:
Florida Bar number
It takes approximately 2 weeks to process a request. If a certificate is needed immediately, please go into any Clerk’s Office Intake Section and an Intake clerk will issue a certificate while you wait. If you request the certificate at the Intake Counter, you may pay by cash, check, money order, or credit card. If a statement of discipline is needed, please include that in your request. There is no charge for this information.
If a copy of your application is needed, please include this information in your request. Someone will contact you regarding this request since applications are periodically purged pursuant to the Records Retention Guidelines from the Administrative Office.
