Florida Attorneys Handle Appeal Services
If you feel that the courts failed to administer the rights you deserve in your divorce or family law case, it isn’t necessarily the end of the road. You have the legal right to challenge their decision by appealing the final judgment.
In family law and divorce cases, it is common for individuals to want the process to end as quickly as possible. Because of this, there is a good chance for information to be overlooked, parties misrepresented, and decisions made unfairly. Additionally, the Florida court tends to be biased towards women and mothers. While appealing a case can lengthen the process of a legal dispute, it may be a necessary step that will affect your future for years to come.
Grounds for Appeals
It’s important to recognize that holding a strong disagreement with the judge’s final decision is not reason enough to justify your appeal. An appeal is not simply a retrial, but rather a revisiting of issues of law that may have been previously overlooked. Some reasons why a family law or divorce ruling could be successfully appealed include:
- Fraud was committed on the court
- Assets were hidden
- Procedural errors were committed by the court
- The Judge may have abused his or her discretion
Florida family law appeals must be filed within 30 days of the delivery or final judgment, and issues are much more complex and technical at the appellate level. It is imperative that you act quickly and have representation from an attorney who is well versed in appellate law.
