2020 Changes to Florida Rules of Procedure that Will Help You with the Florida Bar Exam

Bar Professors Provides Private Tutoring for Repeat Takers for the UBE. North Carolina, Florida, the MBE, UBE, New York and California.

There have been a few changes to Florida law that went into effect on January 1, 2020. 

First, there are changes to the courts' jurisdictional amounts. 

County court jurisdictional thresholds increased to $30,000 and to $50,000 on January 1, 2023.

Small claims cases will include cases up to $8,000.

Filers will be required to include a civil cover sheet specifying the dollar amount in dispute in cases exceeding $8,000 in value.

The new law maintains current rules that limits the provision of subsidized court mediation services to county court cases with an amount in controversy up to $15,000.

State law provides that appeals of county court orders or judgments with an amount in controversy greater than $15,000 will be heard by the district courts of appeal until January 1, 2023, when the provision repeals.

Next, business entities!
