Family Law Appeals in St. Petersburg and the Tampa Bay Area
How Does a Divorce Appeal Work In Florida?
Any party may request a divorce appeal from a trial judge’s ruling by appealing the decision to an appellate court. In essence, the appellate court does not conduct a new trial. Instead, they review documents based on the clerk’s records, court reporter records and the briefs prepared by the attorneys. As a result, family law appeals can be quite complex. So, it is important to retain the services of a highly experienced divorce attorney.
