Family Law Appeals

Obtaining Justice for Clients in Orlando and the state of Florida.

Although appealing a family court ruling can lengthen a legal dispute, it may be a necessary step in righting a wrong that will affect your future for years to come. At CPLS, P.A., our appellate attorneys work hand in hand with our trial lawyers to prepare the record so that all issues are preserved for appeal, if one becomes necessary. We have vast experience representing parties in appealing jurisdictional issues, custody issues, property distribution issues, and other family law issues.

Either side is allowed to appeal a family law decision when a trial judge abuses his/her discretion or applies the wrong standard. Whether you are challenging what you consider to be an unfair judgment or you or are attempting to uphold a ruling in your favor, we will provide you with informative and effective representation. Contact CPLS, P.A. at 407-647-7887 or 877-647-7887  to receive an assessment of your case.

Commonly Appealed Issues

Any type of family court judgment can be appealed. However, most family appeals pertain to:

  • Temporary orders
  • Alimony awards
  • Child support awards
  • Child custody orders
  • Property distributions awards
  • Jurisdictional issues
  • Attorney fees awards
  • Injuctions

CPLS, P.A. is very meticulous in handling appeals. We do extensive research and examine whether the decision from the lower court can be upheld and/or vacated.

We will educate the appellate court on whether the original decision should be affirmed or denied.

Earning the Respect of Our Peers

Since many family law attorneys do not handle appeals, we have many clients referred to us from others lawyers who are not capable of handling an appeal. We consider this to be a great compliment about the level of service we provide, and we look forward to continuing to provide this valuable service.
