In furtherance of the 16th Circuit’s Administrative Order 2.083 Electronic Filing of Documents, pursuant to Florida Rules of Judicial Administration 2.520 and 2.525,
beginning June 15, attorneys will submit proposed orders for the Court’s review and signature through the State of Florida E-Filing Portal. Please be advised that
the E-Filing Portal requires a separate cover letter, in PDF format, with each proposed order. Any exhibits referenced in the body of the proposed order must be
attached, otherwise, the order will be rejected.
COVER LETTER/ PROPOSED ORDERS: Proposed orders are to be submitted through the e-portal with a corresponding cover letter indicating if opposing party/counsel
agrees or objects to the entry of the order. All proposed orders will need to be submitted in Word Format and with the correct DJMCA codes. If the order is not submitted
in Word Format, it will not be entered and may be rejected without notice.
If there is an objection to the proposed order, a hearing may be set. If opposing counsel has been forwarded a copy of the proposed order, but has not responded
within a reasonable timeframe, notify the Court in the cover letter and e-file the proposed order. If the other party is pro se, a copy of the proposed order is to be sent
simultaneously to the pro se party and the court. In such instances, please include in the cover letter that the pro se party must voice any objection in writing to the
Court within five (5) days. Please list any parties that you would like to be included on the distribution list.
The Judges of this Circuit appreciate your usage of electronic platforms to submit proposed orders. We will work with you as we make this transition.
