One of the many services we provide clients is looking up their case on the court docket on a monthly basis. If a suit has not yet been filed, this is a measure that guarantees that the filing of the foreclosure will not be missed. For those already in a foreclosure suit, it serves as a way to keep abreast of all documents filed in the court by the lender, it’s a failsafe implemented by our office in the event that we do not receive proper notification.
Checking on a monthly basis is frequent enough to keep up-to-date with all filings since the nature of foreclosure suits is generally slow-moving, however, sometimes checking the docket a little more often is comforting to our clients. Thus, we have prepared this guide that walks clients through the steps to search for a case in the Miami-Dade docket search.
