BROWARD COUNTY, FL - The new Broward County Judicial Complex West Building, 201 SE Sixth Street, Fort Lauderdale, is now fully open with all Court services being offered to the public. The tenants of the state-of-the-art facility include Court Administration, Clerk of Court, State Attorney's Office, and the Broward Sheriff's Office, which maintains security in the building.
Need to pay a traffic or parking ticket? Making a first court appearance? Looking to become a Legal Guardian? These services and many more are available on the first four floors of the new building, easily accessible by the escalator right off the main lobby after you clear security. Patrons doing business on Floors 1-4 are encouraged to use the escalator system.
To access the North Tower, which houses the Public Defender's office as well as the Criminal and Juvenile Delinquency courtrooms, enter the new courthouse, take the escalator to the second floor and proceed through the pedestrian walkway to the North and East Wings. Follow signage to the North tower. Access is also available through the east bridge entrance area from the parking garage on Third Street. This 3rd Floor East Wing entrance will also take individuals to the Jury Assembly Room, West and North Towers.
While the new Courthouse opened in March 2017, work continues on other projects to the Judicial Complex including major renovation to the East Wing and Midrise buildings, demolition of the old Courthouse building and construction of a new 500 car parking garage and public plaza in its place.
