Attorney Access

Attorney and Registered User Information

An Attorney of Record OR individual can now request to have access to those cases filed with the Courts in Sumter County.

Attorney

A single user would be the typical small office with a single to few attorney offices where you do not have a significantly large staff and you do not wish to internally manage your office accounts. This will be the most typical scenario and will be suitable for most environments
  • For cases which the ATTORNEY is a party to or a representative of, this access will allow them the ability to bypass the need to request documents be made viewable through the normal public records requesting process**

Registered Users

This level of access requires a unique username and password and will grant access to additional case types online.  
  • For any individual looking for additional access to Court Records Online, they are able to apply to become a Registered User
  • This will not allow said user to have any type of immediate access to court document images

Completing Your Application Forms

We will periodically update this section with some helpful tips on how to complete your registration forms.  If you have questions not covered here, please review the FAQ page available online or contact our office during normal business hours.
