    I agree with Attorney Sossoman Taylor that, in my opinion, it is imperative that you consult with an attorney who is Board Certified by the Florida Bar in appellate practice. As the old staying goes, "A stitch in time, saves nine." Sincerely, Shannon McLin Carlyle The Carlyle Appellate Law Firm www.AppellateLawFirm.com

    This means that the appellate court entered an order granting an extension of time. Most likely, a party miled a motion for extension of time to serve their Initial, Answer, or Reply Brief, and the appellate court granted an extension, They usually will grant a 30 day extension, and will most likely grant a second 30 day extension, particularly if the opposing party does not object to the extension.

    Every civil litigant has the right to one direct appeal of a final judgment. However, you must have a legal basis to appeal, i.e., that the trial court comitted reversible error. A notice of appeal must be filed within 30 days of entry of final judgment. A judgment is final when a signed written order is docketed by the clerk. The deadline for filing is jurisdictional, and therefore, it is imperative that if an appeal is an appropriate action under the circumstances of your case, it must...

    As discussed in my prior answer, your chances of success are high. The court has a strong policy of deciding cases on the merits as long as the slip-up is not jurisdictional.

    I see that you are writing from St. Augustine. If your case is pending in the 5th District Court of Appeal the chances of success of your Motion for Extension of Time to Serve Initial Brief is very high. (and, in my experience, it would also be high in the other four district courts of appeal in Florida). The caveat is how late is your brief? If it is a few days late, the other side can hardly show prejudice and Florida courts have a strong public policy of deciding cases on their merits...

    The confusion might be in the fact that there were two orders entered. The first order does not appear to be a final, appealable order because all judicial labor was not complete, i.e, it only determined alimony and, most likely, reserved jurisdiciton for the trial court to consider the child support issue. In an event, once a final, appealable order is rendered (signed by the judge and docketed by the clerk of the circuit court), a "Notice of Appeal" must be filed in the circuit court within...
