Florida Supreme Court Updates Forms

The Florida Supreme Court issued an opinion regarding the Florida Family Law Forms today, the full text of which is available here.  In that ruling, the Court reports the results of an internal review which determined the need to update the forms for sexual, dating, domestic, and repeat violence in order to (1) conform with the changes to Rule of Judicial Administration 2.540 regarding notice required under the Americans with Disabilities Act (2) remove unnecessary requests for personal information such as the place of marriage, place of birth, or gender of a minor child, (3) add language to the forms giving specific notice to those who are served with temporary injunctions warning them that failure to appear at the final hearing may result in a permanent injunction, (4) add language to the petitions requesting a temporary injunction which specifically does, in fact, request a temporary injunction, (5) updates language regarding health and dental insurance to conform with current statutes, and (6) adds each judicial circuit’s depository as an acceptable entity to accept payments.  The Court released the forms immediately ready to use, but will take comments for sixty days.
