Due to the
coronavirus/Covid-19 pandemic, the Overtown Transit Village South Courthouse is closed for in-person hearings, based on public health advisories at the direction
of the Florida Supreme Court.
However, our division remains open Monday
through Friday from 8:00AM - 5:00PM except for legal holidays. The General
Magistrate/Hearing Officer and his/her staff are working remotely and are available
to assist you. We can address most
matters remotely via phone conferences and ZOOM.
If a hearing is needed on your case on a filed motion or petition, contact our office either by phone at 786-469-3960 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. A hearing for your case will then be coordinated with either the State Attorney's Office or any other party involved and held remotely via the ZOOM platform. Please, download on your computer or phone the Zoom Sign Up application that is a FREE service to you.
Once your hearing has been coordinated, you will receive an email from the Court with the information you need to connect to the virtual hearing. You must provide a valid and current email address so that we can email you the invitation link. To participate by video, you must click on the weblink you receive in the email invitation. ZOOM has free training on its website.
To appear through
Zoom, the attorney, litigant or witness must have a computer, laptop, cell
phone or tablet with a camera. All Zoom hearings will need to be held in
a quiet setting without any interruptions so that the only person to be heard
is the attorney, litigant or witness. This includes electronic devices.
Any evidence which is
sought to be admitted must be sent to the other party or counsel and to the
General Magistrates office via email to email@example.com at least 48 hours prior to the hearing.
