COVID-19 Emergency Procedures

Effective immediately, per Administrative Order #2020-00-04, COVID-19 Emergency Procedures in the 14th Judicial Circuit, there are currently no court proceedings and trials until further notice. Essential court proceedings are still in place via video and restricted to the public.  Services are still provided in the Clerk’s office but are restricted as we are trying to maintain the safety of the community and our staff. Please be aware if you choose to come to the Courthouse you may experience longer waiting times, as we are not allowing customers in each area other than required essential filings. We recommend you utilize online services or call for assistance (850-763-9061) whenever possible. Sign up for e-notify for future court dates and updates here.

Passports suspended until further notice

Effective immediately the application and photograph process for obtaining a passport at the Bay County Courthouse is temporary suspended until further notice. This is in response to ongoing COVID-19 emergency procedures.
