Yes. Some hearings are still being conducted via Zoom, for example something called Motion Calendar, and also Uncontested Divorces in Broward County. In Miami-Dade there is currently no requirement to appear in person or via Zoom for a final hearing for an Uncontested Divorce. Uncontested Divorces in Miami are handled by submitting a Final Judgment and other documents to the Judge electronically through the Court’s website.

Yes. We have resumed in-person meetings, but many, for example mediations, we can continue to do via video conference if parties prefer.
