Notice on Mortgage Foreclosure Cases

As of June 30, 2015, funding for the Residential Mortgage Foreclosure Reduction Initiative was terminated by the Florida Legislature due to the significant success at reducing backlog in these cases. The Second Judicial Circuit disposed of thousands of cases, resulting in the second best percentage of older cases and third best disposition times out of twenty judicial circuits.

Because this initiative has been terminated, specially assigned judges, staff attorneys, and case managers will no longer manage many of the residential mortgage foreclosure cases in the Second Judicial Circuit. All residential mortgage foreclosure cases will be solely under the jurisdiction of assigned circuit civil judges on July 1, 2015. Please review each judge's requirements, if posted on our website, or contact that judge's office before you schedule foreclosure hearings so that you may become familiar with all applicable policies and procedures.
