Can a Florida court issue a stay for a child custody decision while an appeal is pending?
Yes, in theory at least. However, in practice, it is likely going to be difficult to keep a child custody order from taking effect while an appeal is pending. This is because most judges tend to feel that decisions affecting children should take effect sooner rather than later. It is one thing to make one party wait a year to get paid a certain sum of money but a whole different (and much more serious) ballgame to delay the best interests of a child from being addressed while an appellate court reviews the Florida family law judge’s decision.
