When It Comes To Appeals, Time Is Of The Essence

When you receive a final judgment in a family law matter such as divorce or custody, you have a limited time frame to bring an appeal. If you don't act within the set amount of days, you waive your right to appeal. It's critical for you to pursue your right to an appeal urgently so that you don't miss the opportunity.

How Do Appeals Work?

When you receive a final judgment in a Florida family law matter, there are likely several components of the decision. While you may not be appealing the entire decision, there may be an opportunity to appeal an aspect of the judgment. You can contest that portion of the ruling through appellate court.

You can appeal a judgment in family law matters, including:

  • Divorce
  • Custody and time-sharing
  • Child or spousal support
  • Paternity
  • Domestic violence
  • Distribution of assets

Not all judgments are eligible for family court appeals. There need to be legal grounds for bringing an appeal rather than just dissatisfaction with the decision. Reasons for appealing a judgment include:

  • Fraud committed by spouse
  • Hidden assets
  • Legal errors

Our appeals lawyers can help you determine if an appeal may be warranted.
