In response to numerous questions from the public regarding common legal issues such as small claims, landlord/tenant disputes, domestic violence, traffic and suspended license matters, child support and mortgage foreclosures, the Miami-Dade Courts launched the “Community Connect” program in May, 2009.
“Community Connect” brings quarterly town hall meetings to various venues throughout Miami-Dade County where a panel of judges discusses and answers questions from the public about these common legal issues. Literature and information on various court programs are also made available to the public at these town hall meetings.
The town hall meetings are aimed at answering questions from the public on how to access the courts, and how the law works in each of the types of cases mentioned above, and are not designed to provide legal advice or discuss specific cases.
