Cases of Interest


FAMILY LAW FORMS--AMENDMENTS. After an internal review, the Court amended existing forms 12.951(a) (Petition to Disestablish Paternity and/or Terminate Child Support Obligation) and 12.951(b) (Order Disestablishing Paternity and/or Terminating Child Support Obligation). The caption to form 12.951(a) was amended "to reflect that the form is a petition for disestablishment of paternity, in accordance with Florida Family Law Rule of Procedure 12.100(c)(1)(D)(iv)." In form 12.951(b), the Court replaced "several instances of mother' with the other parent' so that the form will be appropriate for use in cases with both same-sex and opposite-sex parents, following the United States Supreme Court's decision in Obergefell v. Hodges, 135 S. Ct. 2584 (2015)."

FAMILY LAW FORMS--AMENDMENTS. Form 12.980(b)(1) (Order Setting Hearing on Petition for Injunction for Protection Against Domestic Violence, Repeat Violence, Dating Violence, Sexual Violence, Stalking Without Issuance of an Interim Temporary Injunction) was amended as follows: "We replace language in form 12.980(b)(1) regarding recording and transcription of proceedings with language indicating that proceedings concerning domestic violence or stalking must be recorded by the presiding court and can be transcribed at the parties' expense. The new language also indicates that the presiding court is not required to record or transcribe other types of proceedings set for hearing by the form, but that the parties may arrange to have such proceedings recorded or transcribed at their expense. These amendments clarify a presiding court's obligation to record domestic violence and stalking proceedings pursuant, respectively, to sections 741.30(6)(h) and 784.0485(6)(f), Florida Statutes (2017)."
