Court Business Updates Due To COVID-19

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Thirteenth Judicial Circuit remains in Phase 1 of Florida Supreme Court’s phased approach optimal operations.  During Phase 1, in-person contact is inadvisable and in-person proceedings are rare.

 

Although in-person hearings are rare, judicial business continues with hearings that are generally taking place remotely.  Click on the following link for a directory of remote hearing links by judge.  If you don’t see the judge who will preside over a scheduled hearing in the directory, contact the judge's judicial assistant via our Judicial Directory.
