How do I sign an electronic document?

Please refer to Section 7.0 Electronic Signatures in the Administrative Order SC09-30: Statewide Standards for Electronic Access to the Courts (PDF) for rules governing electronic signatures on court documents.

In general, a submission by a registered user is not required to bear the electronic image of the handwritten signature or an encrypted signature of the filer. Instead, the requirement of a signature on an electronically filed document may be met as follows:
s/ John Doe
John Doe (email address)
Bar Number 12345
Attorney for (Plaintiff/Defendant) XYZ Company
ABC Law Firm
123 S Street
Orlando, FL 32800
Phone: 407-123-4567

See Florida Supreme Court AOSC09-30 for more information.
