News Release


WEST PALM BEACH, FLA. (January 15, 2014) – Residents in Palm Beach County will soon be able to save a trip to West Palm Beach to record documents in the county’s Official Records or file documents in existing County Civil court cases.

Beginning January 21, the Midwestern Communities Service Center in Royal Palm Beach will accept documents for recording, such as deeds, liens and marriage licenses. The office will also accept documents to be filed in existing County Civil cases, such as small claims and eviction cases.

“Palm Beach County’s western communities continue to grow, which is why I’m committed to expanding our services at our Royal Palm Beach office,” said Clerk Sharon Bock. “In the past year, we opened our Royal Palm Beach office five days a week and began offering marriage licenses there. I look forward to bringing additional Clerk’s services there.”

Last year, the Clerk’s Royal Palm Beach office expanded its hours from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, and began offering marriage licenses. The office, located at 200 Civic Center Way, Suite 500, was previously open twice a week for traffic ticket payments.

For more information about the Clerk’s office, please visit www.mypalmbeachclerk.com or call

The Florida Constitution established the independent office of the Clerk & Comptroller as a public trustee, responsible for safeguarding public records and public funds. Clerk Sharon Bock is directly elected by and accountable to Palm Beach County residents.  In addition to the roles of Clerk of the Circuit Court, County Recorder and Clerk of the Board of County Commissioners, the Clerk & Comptroller is the Chief Financial Officer, Treasurer and Auditor for Palm Beach County.
