 CIVIL HEARINGS

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 cases that can be held remotely, via video or phone conference, will be held on the Zoom platform, which is free to you. If we are proceeding with your hearing remotely, you will receive an email from the Court prior to your hearing date. This email will contain 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 remote 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.

If your hearing is not being heard virtually, it will be continued to a later date.

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