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

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!
