Appealing a Divorce Judgment in Florida

Appealing a divorce agreement in Florida is often a long and challenging process. There are very strict rules involved in the appeals process, requiring the skills of an experienced attorney. In order to appeal a court’s decision regarding your divorce, you must have legal grounds to do so. An appeal is not an opportunity to overturn a fair ruling that you do not like. Rather, it is an opportunity for you to have an unfair decision reviewed.

Valid grounds to appeal a divorce decision include:

  • Newly discovered facts
  • Concealment of assets
  • Legal mistakes by the judge
  • Fraud perpetrated on the court by a spouse

Any completed judgment is given the benefit of the doubt by Florida divorce law. Thus, the burden of proof is upon the individual who is appealing a divorce order. In order to have a successful appeals case, the appellant must demonstrate that the court made an error in the conclusions it arrived at in its judgment.

When the appellate court reviews the case, it will not consider any new evidence or hear testimonies from the parties or witnesses. Their decision will be based upon the appellant's brief that explains the reasons for the appeal, as well as all the paperwork from the original trial that must be submitted with the brief.

Contact Our Knowledgeable Team

The first step in appealing your divorce order is finding out if you have grounds for an appeal. Our Naples divorce appeals attorneys are skilled at identifying appealable issues and analyzing their potential for success. If you decide to proceed with the appeal, we can help you gather all the necessary documentation from your divorce trial, file for an appeal, and present persuasive arguments to the appellate court.
