Rule 9.100(c) of the Florida Rules of Appellate Procedure requires that a petition for writ of certiorari be “filed within thirty (30) days of rendition of the order to be reviewed.” (Emphasis added.) Rule 9.100(g) specifically requires that all petitions for certiorari contain at least the following: 1) the jurisdictional basis; 2) facts entitling petitioner to relief; 3) nature of the relief sought; and 4) argument with appropriate citations. The rule also requires that the petition have on its first page a caption appropriate for the court in which the petition is filed. If the action is a circuit court petition for writ of certiorari, Rule 9.100(f)(2) further requires that the caption contain a statement that the pleading is in actuality a petition for writ of certiorari filed pursuant to Rule 9.100. Typically, placement of a short statement such as “Rule 9.100 Petition for Writ of Certiorari” above the case number ***** satisfy the requirements of the rule.
