Florida General Motion To Dismiss Form

by Kimberly from Tampa, Florida, Hillsborough County

Is there a general motion to dismiss form in Florida?

I am looking for a general motion to dismiss form that is not a PDF file.

Answer to Florida Court Forms Question

Dear Kimberly,

Here you go. This is the basic format for a motion.

You could also copy and paste from a pdf to another format like word or wordpad.

Be sure to fill in all the blanks correctly:

  • The header with the circuit number, and the county name;

  • the petitioner's and respondent's names;

  • the case number;

  • the name of the motion (such as... Motion to Dismiss for Lack of Standing);

  • after "Comes Now the" designate whether you are the petitioner, the respondent, plaintiff, or defendant (you remain one or the other throughout your case);

  • it is important to state your reasons for asking the court to dismiss the case;

  • fill in the certification that shows that you have provided a copy of this to the other party and how you provided it;

  • address of the other party (or the address of the other party's attorney if they have one);

  • your signature and your address.

Motion For a Rehearing
by: Tom from Spring Hill, Florida

I missed the final judgement hearing in my divorce case, because I was not notified. The Court admits the error occurred and said I need to file a motion requesting a new final hearing. I didn't think to ask which form to use. Hope you can help.

--You can use the General Motion form above and state the reasons for the request for a rehearing are that you were not properly notified of the original hearing date. Also include all of the details and facts about who you spoke to that told you there was a mistake, and attach any documentation that you may have supporting your request. --Staff
