Family Law Appeals Lawyer in Orlando

Helping Clients Obtain Favorable Rulings

Sometimes the judge doesn't get it their final outcome correct. When the error happens in a divorce, child custody, or paternity case, the consequences can be both painful and long-lasting. Before you resign yourself to living with a court judgment or order that you think is wrong, contact our law office to discuss the possibility of an appeal. Our attorney will listen to your situation to determine whether you have cause for an appeal or not. If so, we will effectively guide you through the appeals process.

Call our firm at (407) 634-1830 to schedule your appointment.

When to Request an Appeal

If you believe a judge has made an error with your case, it’s important to contact our Orlando family law appeals lawyer as soon as possible. In Florida, there are three legal options available to your appeals case. Each option is dependent upon how much time has passed since the initial ruling.

Options include:

  1. Rehearing: If you act quickly enough, you can request a rehearing of your case. There are specific deadlines depending on whether your case was heard by a general magistrate or a judge.
  2. Appeal: You can request an appeal to the district court of appeal within 30 days of your court order or judgment.
  3. Motion for Release of Judgment: If more than 30 days have passed since your court order or judgment, you can file a motion for relief. To be successful, you may be required to prove fraud on the part of your ex.

Appeals are different from trials in that you are not allowed to introduce new evidence. Instead, your lawyer must prove thorough existing court records that your judge or magistrate did not follow Florida law.

The appellate court can uphold the existing order or judgment, change it, or send your case back to the trial judge to be reheard. The losing side may have the right to appeal to the decision to the Florida Supreme Court.
