The Miami-Dade Courts are proud to announce the rollout of a new text message hearing reminder feature added to courtMAP, the courts’ online case management and scheduling system for Circuit Civil, County Civil, Probate and Family cases.
“Text messaging is a well-known means of communication for many people, so adding this feature to courtMAP was a logical next step,” said the Honorable Bertila Soto, Chief Judge of the Eleventh Judicial Circuit. “We hope these text message alerts prove to be a useful tool for all those who are juggling busy lives along with staying on top of their court cases.”
The text messaging feature is available for free to anyone interested in keeping track of future hearings in a case – whether they are parties in the case, attorneys, relatives, or journalists following cases of public interest.
Text message alerts for Criminal cases are available separately through the State’s e-Notify system, which has been linked on the Miami-Dade Courts’ Hearing Text Alerts page for convenience.
For more information and to sign up for free text message alerts for Circuit Civil, County Civil, Probate and Family cases, sign up for courtMAP text alerts on the Miami-Dade Courts’ Hearing Text Alerts page.
