Scheduling

Attorneys may schedule Special Set Motions (1 hour or under) using the online scheduling program. Parties will be restricted to the time they allotted for the hearing. The calendar will indicate when the FAMILY or CIVIL UMC and Special Set Motion hearings are to be scheduled. The website is https://slccjis.stlucieco.gov/attorney_calendar. Users must register to obtain a user id and password on the site. Copies of motions and notice of hearings must be sent to the Judicial Assistant. The Court reserves the discretion to reject any scheduling. Attorneys who repeatedly abuse the online scheduling may be denied further privileges of self-scheduling. Non-evidentiary motions may be denied without hearing, e.g., motions to dismiss.  Please review Judge White’s procedures posted on here as well.

Longer hearings must be set with the Judicial Assistant after sending a copy to the Judicial Assistant. Attorneys should consult the Judge’s on-line calendar (link below) and confer with opposing counsel on mutually convenient dates before calling the J.A.
