Please be advised, all Attorneys must be registered with Florida Bar in order to get access to CMS system. To receive eservice and ability to upload documents, users need to be registered with the state E-portal.

Further, in order to schedule a case for trial the scheduling attorney must now check a box certifying he/she will send the trial order to any self-represented party. As the court often does not know if an attorney has withdrawn in a case or if there are self-represented parties without a registered email address, the court, under the rules of judicial administration now will require an attorney of record to certify he/she has served any court order on a self- represented party.

The uniform trial order has been amended on this issue as well. Lastly, on trial orders, the mediation section of the order has changed. After the trial order has been approved by the judge, another order will likely be sent out by the court designating a mediator for the case.

Any questions or glitches with the system can be sent via email to the courts Judicial Information System at calendar@17th.flcourts.org
