Florida Divorce & Child Custody | Appellate Motion Practice

Before you pay an attorney, get the information and answers to the most common questions when considering appealing a Florida divorce or child custody case.


In divorce court, it is not uncommon for litigants to engage in “motion practice” where the parties file motions on smaller matters and typically within two weeks have a short five to ten minute hearing on the issue.  In divorce appeals, however, the “motion practice” is much different.  There are far fewer motions and it is rare for the appeals court to ever hold a hearing on a motion.  Most motions at the appellate level in divorce court appeals focus on procedural matters, such as expanding or limiting the appellate record or appellate deadlines or on the issue of appellate attorney’s fees.
