Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
It sounds like you've covered everything, so thank you for the Excellent service. Thank you also for taking a look at the form to be more certain. Just to make sure I fully understand: The judge's "no action required." doesn't mean that the judge personally will be performing no action, but rather means that no action is required by me. If anything is needed by me, they will contact me. I was just afraid of not having something (and the clerk that I spoke with sort of got me worried) and the case closing because I didn't submit this "Proposed Order" by some secret deadline. I was also afraid that I maybe should have submitted copies of that form to all members on the case. I only sent it to the clerk of courts. Again thank you. Steve
You are correct- nothing further is required of you at this time. I wish you well.
Please be so kind as to rate my reply ok or better so that I am compensated for assisting you.
Back in August I asked about the status of my case in regards to an "OWNER CLAIM FOR MORTGAGE FORECLOSURE SURPLUS" and you recommended that I wait. Now it seems they are considering closing my case. I have waited almost a year in total now (since 5/23/13), so I recently sent the Judge's judicial assistant an inquiry stating:
"I see from the case view that the most recent Action Dscr has a Status of RO with the same date that our case was reopened (5/23/2013). Could you possibly clarify what this status represents (release order / reopened perhaps), and what our next steps might be?" and she replied:
"Nothing had been docketed since 5/23/13 and since then there has been no activity.
Thank you Brent. I don't mean to keep you waiting. I'll respond as soon as I get a chance to verify some things. I was really hoping to get a response from dylatess when I posted, and I have slight concern about JustAnswer not having routed this question to him (or at least a Florida expert - which probably isn't your fault). I get the impression your steering me in the proper direction anyway - in which case I'll be glad to leave a favorable rating.
