Information About Courthouse Closures for COVID-19

Information About Courthouse Closures for COVID-19

On March 17, 2020, Chief Judge Zambrano issued an Emergency Court Order outlining Court Procedures during COVID-19. This is how that Order affects you and the progress of your criminal matter.

Effectively, this Order closes the courthouse to the general public, with few exceptions, from March 18, 2020 through April 20, 2020. PLEASE NOTE: THAT GOVERNOR DESANTIS HAS CLOSED ALL NON-ESSENTIAL BUSINESSES THROUGH APRIL 30, 2020. THEREFORE, IT IS LIKLEY THAT THE COURTHOUSE WILL CLOSE THROUGH APRIL 30, 2020 AS WELL.

The Order only allows court hearings to take place for what are deemed “Mission Critical” issues. Mission Critical issues include First Appearances, Bond Motions, Juvenile Detention Hearings, Domestic Violence Injunction Hearings, and others.

If you, or a family member has been arrested, attorneys are specifically excluded from this Order and are allowed to appear at Mission Critical Hearings on behalf of their clients.

Also, be sure to know that while this Order is in place, all first appearances are held at 8:30 AM.
