If you are ready to get started with a Marchman Act petition in Palm Beach County, Florida, you can work with an attorney or file the paperwork yourself. The Clerk of the Circuit Court and Comptroller for Palm Beach County has the paperwork you will need to seek involuntary addiction treatment for someone you care about.

If the individual named in the petition can afford to pay for their own treatment, or if you are willing to do so, the Court is more likely to grant the petitions. State-funded rehabs in Florida have limited capacity for involuntary assessment and treatment, so consider funding before you file.

The Clerk of Court will provide a packet for filing under the Marchman Act in Florida. These are different for minors and adults, and will include:

  • An emergency Chapter 397 Ex-Parte Petition for Involuntary Assessment and Stabilization
  • A standard Petition for Involuntary Assessment and Stabilization
  • A Chapter 397 Petition for Involuntary Treatment, to be used if the assessment determines there is need for treatment
