Miami, FL (PRWEB) June 27, 2015
S. G. Morrow & Associates announced today successful outcomes in two recent family law cases. Attorney Stephanie G. Morrow and her team recently won two cases in the 3rd District Court of Appeals, one of which required the opposing party to pay her client’s attorney’s fees. Known as “Rosen” fees (Rosen v. Rosen, 696 So.2d 697), such fees are assessed when a party to a lawsuit misuses the judicial system to such a degree that the action initiated is found to be frivolous.
Zins v. Zins - 3rd District Court of Appeals in Miami (Appellate Case No. 3D14-2182) involved a dispute over a lien placed on property for outstanding child support. The Appellate Court found that the order granting the entry of the equitable lien, as entered by the lower Court, was not a final order, and thus the ex-husband’s appeal was improper. Accordingly, Attorney Morrow’s client, the ex-wife, was granted Rosen fees. The matter was remanded to the trial court for a determination as to the proper amount of fees to be awarded.
The other victory of note was Adriana Nacimento De Mattos v. Steven William Bral - 3rd District Court of Appeals in Miami (Case No. 3D14-2392). In this instance, Attorney Morrow represented the “Husband”. According to the pleadings, the “Husband”, Steven Bral, was granted an annulment from his ”Wife” based on a finding that the “Wife” had committed immigration fraud. The fraud was so egregious that the court, once again, awarded attorney’s fees to Ms. Morrow’s client. On appeal the “Wife” (1) objected to the entry of an annulment versus a dissolution of marriage; (2) objected to the award of attorney’s fees; and (3) objected to the granting of summary judgment. Upon review, the Court of Appeals struck the first and second grounds as time barred and affirmed the lower court's granting of the summary judgment.
At the Miami Law Offices of S. G. Morrow & Associates, P.A., “Our law practice is based on the philosophy that clients are our number-one priority,” says Stephanie G. Morrow. “We make you the priority by listening, advising, and supporting you in your legal decisions.”
The firm is committed to educating their clients about the nuances of family law litigation, particularly when there is a nexus between family and immigration law. Additionally, although Florida is a “no fault” state, there are situations in which an annulment is the correct cause of action.
