Attorneys for Family Law Appeals in Palm Beach County

Our North Palm Beach appeals attorneys handle a variety of appeals of decisions in family law cases. There are many reasons why a person may want to appeal a family court decision. In most cases, the party feels that he or she received an unjust ruling by the judge or a mistake was made during the case that resulted in the wrong outcome in the case. If you believe your rights have been ignored in a family law matter, you have the legal right to file an appeal of the final judgment.

The Law Offices of Nugent Zborowski provide family law appeals services for cases throughout Palm Beach County. Call 561-844-1200 to discuss your case with an experienced Florida family law attorney.

The outcome of a family law case affects your future in ways that you may not even realize. Do not accept a decision that you believe to be unjust without obtaining legal advice regarding your options for an appeal.

 

What are the Grounds for Appealing a Family Court Decision?

Disagreeing with the judge’s decision in your case does not necessarily mean that you have valid legal grounds for an appeal. However, it is worth consulting with one of our family law attorneys to discuss your case if you feel strongly that the decision in your case was unjust or unfounded.

Our attorneys, Matthew S. Nugent and Adam M. Zborowski, have extensive experience investigating the circumstances of a family court ruling to determine if the party has grounds for an appeal. Some of the grounds that may lead to a successful appeal of the decision in your case include:

  • The judge abused his or her discretion in deciding the case;

  • The judge did not consider statutory elements or requirements when deciding the case;

  • The court committed procedural errors;

  • Additional evidence or a change in circumstances justifies a review of the case; and,

  • The judge’s decision is not consistent with the applicable law.

An appeal lengthens the time it takes to obtain a final resolution of your family law matter. However, when a decision is made in error, an appeal may be necessary to set things right, especially when the decision involves your children.

 

Commonly Appealed Cases in Florida Family Courts

Either party can appeal any family court decision if they have grounds for the appeal. However, some decisions are commonly appealed such as:

  • Parenting plans and timesharing

  • Child support payments

  • Alimony or spousal support

  • Division of property

If you intend to appeal a family court decision, you need a team of legal professionals who are highly-skilled and knowledgeable in the appellate process. Our attorneys and staff members have the experience and resources you want on your side as you fight to ensure you receive an impartial and fair judgment in your family court case.
