INSTRUCTIONS FOR FLORIDA SUPREME COURT APPROVED
FAMILY LAW FORM 12.924
NOTICE FOR TRIAL
(06/18)
When should this form be used?
Generally, the court will have trials (or final hearings) in contested cases. This form is to be used to
notify the court that your case is ready to be set for trial. Before setting your case for trial, certain
requirements such as completing mandatory disclosure and filing certain papers and having them
served on the other party must be met. These requirements vary depending on the type of case and the
procedures in your particular circuit. In some circuits you must complete mediation or a parenting
course before you can set a final hearing by using a Notice of Hearing (General), Florida Supreme Court
Approved Family Law Form 12.923, or other appropriate notice of hearing form. Other circuits may
require that you set the trial using an Order Setting Trial. Contact the clerk of the circuit court, family
law intake staff, or judicial assistant to determine how the judge assigned to your case sets trials. For
further information, you should refer to the instructions for the type of form you are filing.
This form should be typed or printed in black ink. After completing this form, you should file the original
with the clerk of the circuit court in the county where your case is filed and keep a copy for your records.

your hearing or trial.
