Judicial Assignment History

 
Chief Judge, Eleventh Judicial Circuit of Florida: Circuit Family Division

 

Please be aware that due to growing concerns about the safety of our community and the spread of the Coronavirus and COVID-19 disease, the Lawson E. Thomas Courthouse is closed to the public, except on mission critical matters. 

However, our divisions remain open. The Judge and his/her staff are working and available.   We are able to address most matters remotely via phone conferences and/or COURTMAP and ZOOM.  It is important that

 ALL ATTORNEYS AND SELF REPRESENTED LITIGANTS MUST SIGN UP FOR AN ACCOUNT AT FLORIDA COURTS E-FILING PORTAL AT

and
Sign up for COURTMAP at

https://www.jud11.flcourts.org/Programs-and-Services/Online-Services/
for submitting proposed orders to your assigned Judge.

The judges will be using the ZOOM platform for most hearings.  It is FREE.  If you are unfamiliar with the Zoom platform, please go to the ZOOM training page website to learn how to access the platform for use.

To set a case for a (5) minute motion, the Notice of Hearing must be electronically filed with the Clerk's office.  All notices/motions should be mailed or hand delivered with seven days working  notice. 

Chambers must be called for hearing date prior to noticing and total time alloted per case is limited to 5 minutes.  Courtesy copies should be delivered to the judge's chambers.

This Section is now using courtMAP and document submissions are no longer available via eCourtesy.

courtMAP is a new online Management and Access Platform built upon technology infrastructure from Broward’s Court Management System.

courtMAP combines eCourtesy with online scheduling, online notification/confirmation, and allows judges to create and e-File orders. courtMAP also allows parties to self-schedule their case events - motion calendar, special sets, and trials - and attach the documentation previously submitted via eCourtesy.
