Sometimes the law is confusing. Find out the orders that can be appealed, what they mean and when they can be appealed in Florida divorce or custody case.
Can I file an appeal now if the order is a “non-appealable non-final order”?
Yes, in several limited circumstances. If the order is a “non-final order” that cannot be appealed, you can appeal the order at the end of the case after a final order has been entered.
Also, “non-final non-appealable” orders can still be appealed through seeking a Writ of Certiorari, Writ of Mandamus or Writ of Prohibition from the appeals court. Generally, these situations involve the limited circumstances of appealing an order granting discovery, appealing a judge’s decision to deny a motion for disqualification (recusal), or seeking an appellate court mandate requiring the trial court to take action. Certiorari, mandamus and prohibition remedies are explained generally here, and are separately explained in detail in the following sections: Writs of Certiorari; Writs of Mandamus; and Writs of Prohibition.
