Hello and thank you for the opportunity to assist you. Please remember that there might be a delay between your follow up questions and my answers because I may be helping other customers or taking a break.

Per Florida Rules of Civil Procedure Rule 1.530, you have 10 days to file a Motion for Rehearing. You would file it with the Court and set it for a hearing, and serve the other party, much like a pre-judgment motion, and then argue it in Court.

If the Court denies the motion, then you may appeal the case overall to the interlocutory court; appeal time tolls while your Motion for Rehearing is pending. It is not clear if you may appeal the Motion for Rehearing to the interlocutory court at this time, with different Florida Courts taking different stances on the matter.
