The Court will not include sanctions on ex-parte motions to compel (expenses, attorney's fees, or waiver of non-privilege objections) - those require a hearing.

3) Motions for Substitution of Counsel must comply with the requirements of Fla. R. Jud. Admin. 2.505 and certify that the incoming counsel has conferred with current counsel, reviewed the case docket, and is aware of all upcoming depositions, hearings, and other deadlines in the case.

9) If you seek to cross-notice a hearing already set and/or approved by the Judge, send a copy of the cross notice to the Court's Judicial Assistant to ensure the calendar is properly updated.  Otherwise, the matter may not be heard.

10) If you need to email the Judge's judicial assistant (e.g., to request or cancel a hearing, confirm the filing of a motion, etc.), you must copy all parties in the case.  Otherwise, these may be considered impermissible ex-parte communications, which will not be read and will be deleted.  DO NOT email Judge Gonzalez-Marques directly about your case; the email will be deleted without reading it.


Pursuant to Administrative Order, all hearings except FWOP and Motion Calendars have returned to be in-person. SMALL CLAIMS PRE-TRIAL CONFERENCES ARE IN PERSON.

courtMAP populates all regular Special Set hearings requests as Zoom hearings.  The Court will continue to allow non-evidentiary Special Set hearings to occur via Zoom.  Evidentiary hearings, and Special Set hearings longer than 30 minutes, are presumptively in person, unless the Court has provided prior approval AND all parties have agreed to Zoom.  Should this procedure change, the Court will post the update on this page.  All parties are expected to read and comply with the Judge's Special Set procedures on the Special Sets tab.

Evidentiary hearings and bench trials will be held in person UNLESS authorized by the Judge. 


This Division uses a universal Zoom ID for all Zoom hearings (please see below); no Zoom notice will be issued.  For all hearings, please arrive in the Virtual Courtroom at least 5 minutes before your scheduled hearing time.  Additionally, counsel setting the hearing must include the universal Zoom link on the Notice of Hearing.  Failure to do so may result in your hearing being canceled and having to reset.
