In a divorce situation, you may feel that you did not get the ruling that you wanted or deserved. You have the right to appeal the decision to a higher court called the Court of Appeals.
In order to appeal, you must have a legal reason or basis that is appropriate based on your case and file that appeal within 30 days of the final judgment.
The court recognizes reasons for appeal, such as:
- Legal errors made by the lower court
- Evidence that your Judge did not permit you your rights as you are granted them by the Florida Constitution and the United States Constitution
- An inability by the Judge or the other attorney to properly notify you that a hearing was going on that was going to affect your rights
And this is just naming a few of the reasons why a case should be appealed. This decision is a very serious one to make BUT must be made within a pretty short period of time after your Court Case. It is not to be taken lightly.
Ms. Alper has successfully handled family law appeals and will continue to do so after discussing this matter fully and completely with you.
