Do I need to attend my court date?

A good rule of thumb is to make sure you appear at your court date unless your attorney has told you they are waiving your appearance.

How do I know when my court date is?

The county clerk should have the most up-to-date information on when your next court date is. Florida recently started an eNotify system you can find here: enotify.flcourts.org. Here you can sign up for email or text notifications that will let you know when you court date is coming up. It will also let you know if your court date was cancelled.

What is an arraignment hearing?

The purpose for an arraignment is for the Court to let you know what charges you’ll be facing and for you to enter a plea. If you enter a guilty plea at arraignment, the Court will go straight into sentencing. If you enter a not guilty plea, you will have the chance to either qualify for an appointed attorney or hire an attorney on your own. Typically people enter not guilty pleas at arraignment so they can at least see the evidence against them. It’s a good idea to have a free consultation with an attorney prior to your arraignment to discuss your options.

What is a case management hearing?

Case managements are routine hearings for your case where your attorney will let the Court know whether they are ready to resolve the case, need more time, or whether a trial will be needed. Typically your presence is not required but always make sure to check with your attorney first before not showing up to Court. In order to waive your presence, your attorney must be able to tell the Court they are in good contact with you.
