HOW TO GET AN AFORM IN 11TEEN EASY STEPS

Master trial lawyer Jack Blumenfeld asked this question on FACDL:

Could someone please repeat the procedure to get an A Form from the Clerk’s Office?

Thank you

Jack R. Blumenfeld

And this was the response 

  
It was supposed to be for any arrest form, but was recently emailed back that they only do 72 hours.

Email:
Please send me the a-form for f17-12345
Response: There are four co-defendants A,B,C,D- which one?
Email: B
Response: B what?
Email: B a good clerk and email me the B aform for F17-123456
Response: A forms have no B that's why they are called A
Email: May I please have the A-form for F17-12345B
Response: Have you registered? Do you have a user ID number, password and PIN?
Email: No- how do I get those?
Response: Send a self addressed stamped envelope to Tallahassee, Office of Clerk of the Court: Attention A-Forms, and provide a check for 11.17 to The Clerk of the Court, A forms division. In three weeks you will receive a post card with a temporary PIN. Log in to "Iwantanaform.org" and set up an account. Then when you email this office, provide the PIN, the Password, and the User name.  

Rinse. Repeat.
