Please be aware that it may take up to three days to process the filing and become available in the Clerk's case maintenance system. If there is a hearing scheduled within the three day processing period the filing may not get processed and into court case file in time for the hearing.
Pursuant to Florida Rule of Judicial Administration 2.510, an out-of-state attorney wishing to appear in a Florida case must be granted permission by the court where the case is pending by filing a Motion to Appear Pro Hac Vice (PHV). A copy of the Motion is to be sent to The Florida Bar. The Florida Bar will send a letter to the movant with their PHV number.
The attorney must use the PHV number to register with the Portal and e-file future pleadings. Until the attorney receives their PHV number, all pleadings will be e-filed by the local attorney designated in the Motion. If an attorney has a pending case and needs a PHV number, a number will be assigned. For questions on obtaining a PHV number, call The Florida Bar at 850-561-5840.
