Please make sure to get a sale date from the Clerk's Office or the Judicial Assistant  before submit your Order/Judgment.  The Judge will not sign an Order/Judgment if there is a blank line.  It will be rejected.

Coronavirus/COVID-19:   Courthouses are closed for in-person hearings and trials based on public health advisories at the direction of the Florida Supreme Court. The Eleventh Judicial Circuit wants you safe at home. 

We are establishing Virtual Courtrooms. Court hearings in your case that we can hold remotely  via video or phone conference will be held on the Zoom platform, which is free to you. You will receive an email from the Court if we are proceeding with your hearing with the information you need to connect.  To participate by video, you must click on the weblink you received in the email invitation at the time your hearing is scheduled or call the phone number listed in the invitation to participate by phone. You do not need to download anything or set up an account in order for you to participate in a zoom hearing.

Video appearance is required for any participant whose testimony is necessary so the judge can administer the oath.

Please wait until a day before your scheduled hearing for the court to send you an email containing a Zoom link and instructions.  If you resolve your matter, please cancel it in CourtMAP or, if you have no access to CourtMAP, by calling the judge’s judicial assistant.

All hearings scheduled for the week of April 6, 2020 and forward will proceed as scheduled via Zoom platform.  Future motion calendar and special set hearings can be scheduled through CourtMap and will be heard in the same manner until further notice.
