Submitting orders/on line scheduling
- Judge Marx's division is piloting the NEW 15th Circuit Judicial Viewer System ("JVS"). Do not submit any orders in anticipation of a hearing. Orders should be submitted through the Online Scheduling System, without a signature line, as the orders will be signed electronically and will be e-filed and e-served. If the order being submitted is regarding a hearing held in open court, the date of that hearing must be included in the first sentence of the order.
- Orders submitted for cases involving pro se litigants: the order must indicate that the moving party will be serving the pro se party with a copy of the order via US Mail.
- NOTE: When setting a hearing online, the order setting hearing is immediately uploaded for signature. The online scheduling system does not allow you to hold dates, so you must be sure the date is coordinated with all parties prior to setting the hearing. All motions must be filed and docketed with the Clerk prior to scheduling a Special Set hearing. The system now allows you to upload the motion as a supporting document.
- To submit an order to the Court (WORD FORMAT), log on to the 15th Judicial Circuit Online Scheduling website, sign in, and follow the directions. Training videos have been posted on YouTube. Please open YouTube on the internet and search "15th judicial circuit of Florida" for more information. Should you have questions concerning the system, email your questions and feedback to CAD-WEB@pbcgov.org. The parties must be in complete agreement of the order to be submitted through the online scheduling system. Otherwise, if the parties are not in full agreement the order must be submitted to by U.S. regular mail and indicate that multiple orders will be forthcoming from the same hearing.
- If the parties are submitting a proposed Final Dismissal, Order Specially Setting Hearing, Ex-Parte Orders Order of Substitution, which require the Court to view additional documentation, please attach as supporting documentation.
