County Court jurisdictional limit set to increase from $15,000 to $30,000 for cases filed on or after January 1, 2020

Chapter 2019-58, Laws of Florida, increased the maximum dollar amount in controversy of cases under the jurisdiction of county courts. The Legislature took a phased approach to the implementation of this amendment. Effective January 1, 2020, county court jurisdiction increases from a current upper limit of $15,000 to $30,000 and is scheduled for a second upward adjustment to $50,000 on January 1, 2023.
