Fort Myers Family Law Appeals Lawyers

You Must Act Quickly To Protect Your Right To Appeal

Appeals can be extremely complicated and can only be pursued after a final judgment, or certain orders, have been rendered. After a Florida court issues a decision, you have very limited time to file a proper notice of appeal. If you fail to satisfy the strict time limit, then you will waive your right to appeal, and the law will bar the appellate court from hearing your case.

If you are considering an appeal, you need to speak with an experienced lawyer who can guide you through the procedural actions that are required to protect your rights. A qualified Fort Myers family law appeals attorney can also help you understand whether an appeal is the best course of action in your case. Sometimes, a motion for reconsideration, a motion for a new trial, or a post-judgment modification is a more cost-effective and viable alternative to filing an appeal.

If you believe that the court misapplied the law to your final divorce decree or family law judgment, you may have grounds to appeal. A common misconception is that an appeal offers a second chance to try your case if you were dissatisfied with the original decision. In actuality, an appeal must be based upon a belief that the court made a legal error in your case; simply disagreeing with the judge’s decision does not provide legal grounds to appeal.
