Appeals

Seeking Justice for Our Clients

People go to Court to seek justice. However, the fact of the matter is that Judges are human and 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 because you have a limited time frame in which to act before you lose your right to appeal. The Sharp & Dye team handles these matters and is able to assist you.

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 situations 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. Contact Sharp & Dye today.
