Court Services - Appeals

Appeals on Criminal cases may be filed at the Clerk's Office. An appeal of a lower court decision is a legal process by which a higher court is asked to review the trial court's record and rule on the legal issues raised by the appellant, the person filing the appeal. All other parties in the case are the appellees.

Any party to the case may file an appeal. A Civil case appeal (Small Claims, County Civil, Circuit Civil or Family) must follow the Florida Rules of Court Appellate Rule 9.200 for the Record, 9.210 for the brief and 9.900 for the forms.
