RULE 12.090. TIME

(a)    Computation. Computation of time shall be governed by Florida Rule of General Practice and Judicial Administration 2.514.

(b)    Enlargement. When an act is required or allowed to be done at or within a specified time by order of court, by these rules, or by notice given thereunder, for cause shown the court at any time in its discretion (1) with or without notice, may order the period enlarged if a request is made before the expiration of the period originally prescribed or as extended by a previous order, or (2) on motion made and notice after the expiration of the specified period, may permit the act to be done when failure to act was the result of excusable neglect. However, the court may not extend the time for making a motion for new trial, for rehearing, or to alter or amend a judgment, making a motion for relief from a judgment under rule 12.540(b), taking an appeal or filing a petition for certiorari, or making a motion for a directed verdict.

(c)    For Motions. A copy of any written motion which may not be heard ex parte and a copy of the notice of the hearing on the written motion must be served a reasonable time before the time specified for the hearing.
