People go to Court to seek justice. The fact of the matter is that Judges are human and that they sometimes make mistakes. These mistakes are why it is possible to appeal a family law case all the way to the Florida Supreme Court. If your case has recently ended, and you believe that the Judge made a legal error or some other type of incorrect decision, then you only have a limited amount of time to appeal. It is crucial that you contact a Florida family law appeals lawyer immediately as, if you miss this limited time frame, you will lose your right to appeal. Our Melbourne attorney handles such matters and is able to assist you. Contact us today.
Melbourne family law attorney handling appeals of matters involving divorce or child custody
An appeal may be filed when a case has concluded and it is believed that the Judge made an error. This mistake can range from misapplying the law to allowing evidence which should have been excluded. It is important to understand that an appeal is not a new trial. It is asking a higher Court to correct an error made by the Trial Judge. The types of issues which can be raised in an appeal include:
- The appeal of a spousal support award
- The appeal of the Court’s property distribution in a divorce
- Appealing a child custody decision
- Appealing a child relocation matter
- Appealing the termination of parental rights
Whichever of these situation it is you face, the appellate process will be complex. Many attorneys do not handle appeals and it is crucial that you hire counsel who can properly handle the situation.
