Florida Appeals attorneys Shannon McLin and Bill Palmer successfully defended a final order dismissing a motion to enforce a final judgment and compel the sale of a marital home which was filed more than 20 years after entry of the judgment. The movant argued the 20-year statute of limitations did not begin until the parties’ youngest child turned 18. The Fifth District Court of Appeal agreed with Florida Appeals’ arguments that the limitations period began to run the date the judgment was entered, and the movant failed to bring an action the limitations period or to timely move to obtain a new judgment that would have been enforceable.

written opinion affirming the order of dismissal was rendered on February 11, 2022.
