WHEREAS, it has also been made known to the undersigned that a procedure must be developed to assign Injunctions for Protection and Juvenile Dependency cases involving the same parties to the same judicial division;

NOW THEREFOREI, JULIANNE PIGGOTTE, Chief Judge of the Seventh Judicial Circuit of Florida, hereby order that upon the filing of an Injunction for Protection, the Clerk of Court’s Office shall ascertain if a Domestic Relations case or a Juvenile Dependency case involving the same parties exists. If so, the Clerk’s Office shall assign the Injunction for Protection to the judicial division to which the Domestic Relations case or the Juvenile Dependency case is assigned.  In the event that both a Domestic Relations case and a Juvenile Dependency case involving the same parties exist, the Clerk’s Office shall assign the Injunction for Protection to the judicial division to which the Juvenile Dependency case is assigned.

IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that upon the filing of a Domestic Relations case or a Juvenile Dependency case, the Clerk of Court’s Office shall ascertain if an Injunction for Protection involving the same parties exists. If so, the Clerk’s Office shall assign the Domestic Relations case or Juvenile Dependency case to the judicial division to which the Injunction for Protection is assigned, provided Domestic Relations cases or Juvenile Dependency cases are normally assigned to said judicial division.  If said judicial division is not normally assigned to handle Domestic Relations cases or Juvenile Dependency cases, the Clerk’s Office shall assign the Domestic Relations case or Juvenile Dependency case to a judicial division normally assigned to handle such cases and shall administratively reassign/transfer the Injunction for Protection to said judicial division.

IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that upon the filing of a Domestic Relations case, the Clerk of Court’s Office shall ascertain if a Juvenile Dependency case involving the same parties exists. If so, the Clerk’s Office shall assign the Domestic Relations case to a judicial division normally assigned to handle such cases and shall promptly notify each of the affected judicial divisions of the existence of said cases.  Conversely, upon the filing of a Juvenile Dependency case, the Clerk of Court’s Office shall ascertain if a Domestic Relations case involving the same parties exists. If so, the Clerk’s Office shall assign the Juvenile Dependency case to a judicial division normally assigned to handle such cases and shall promptly notify each of the affected judicial divisions of the existence of said cases.

IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that Administrative Order # FM-2004-015-SC is hereby rescinded.
