On October 2, 2020, Florida Supreme Court Chief Justice Charles Canady issued Amendment 7 to AOSC20-23.

Section II(C)(3) of the Administrative Order indicates:  “All rules of procedure, court orders, and opinions applicable to remote testimony, depositions, and other legal testimony, including the attestation of family law forms, that can be read to limit or prohibit the use of audio-video communications equipment to administer oaths remotely or to witness the attestation of family law forms, shall remain suspended.”

In summary, remote oaths will continue to be permitted under the Supreme Court’s Administrative Order(s) until there is a specified end date.  FCRA will continue to update you on any modifications or changes which affect our profession.
