Family Law Appeal Cases Handled by Us

Lift v. Lift, 1 So. 3d 259 (Fla. 4th DCA 2009)

Final judgment of dissolution of marriage.

HELD: (1) trial court could not award husband and wife each a 50 percent share of wife’s veterinary practice; (2) trial court erred in failing to follow the parties’ stipulation; (3) trial court could not order sale of the marital home; and (4) trial court could not award alimony to husband without making required findings of fact.

At trial level: Following appeal, obtained favorable judgment. Due to substantial contributions, spouse received unequal distribution (90%) of value of business. Final judgment upheld on a subsequent appeal.

M.M. v. Adoption of J.T.M., 821 So. 2d 1134 (Fla. 4th DCA 2002)

HELD: Trial court erred in granting grandparents’ motion to withdraw consent from birth mother in anticipation of adoption, where they failed to present clear and convincing evidence of her complete abandonment of the child and her responsibilities. Appellate court held that more is required to excuse consent then abuse, neglect, or even temporary abandonment. Abandonment requires a complete relinquishment of responsibility.

Conlan v. Conlan, 43 So. 3d 931 (Fla. 4th DCA 2010)

HELD: Trial court abused its discretion under § 61.16(1), Fla. Stat., in denying a wife’s request for fees and costs because, given the husband’s ability to pay and the disparity in the parties’ incomes, requiring the wife to pay for her attorney’s fees would have resulted in an inequitable diminution of her equitable distribution funds.

Armstrong v. Armstrong, 623 So. 2d 1216 (Fla. 4th DCA 1993)

Final judgment of dissolution of marriage.

HELD: (1) pretrial stipulation on income was binding; (2) imputing additional income to husband was error; (3) awarding former wife attorney fees in spite of relative equal financial circumstances was abuse of discretion; and (4) order requiring husband to pay children’s future medical bills must be limited to reasonable and necessary medical expenses.

In the Interest of KGS: Through appellate and trial proceedings, was able to have young son returned to his biological mother. Mother had been discriminated against and had her parental rights taken away due to her level of education and the type of job she had.
