This is a risk inherent in litigation and also why we have family law appeals. The appeals process is an opportunity to take your case to a higher level for review to correct legal errors.
Appellate law is unlike other areas of law. The lawyers who handle appeals cases must have a deep knowledge, understanding, and experience trying appellate cases. Appeals are also usually more challenging than typical cases of collaborative divorce.
The pool of lawyers familiar with appeals cases is therefore quite small. When you consider that comparatively few family law cases go on to appeal, the number of experienced family law appeals lawyers is even smaller.
Family and matrimonial law are the exclusive focus of our practice. When people come to us with an appellate matter, we have the knowledge, experience, and certifications necessary to assist them.
Appeals are tough and can often be a long and drawn out process. It can be hard to know when your case merits a second look. One of the first steps is discerning between a legal error and a simple disagreement.
In some cases, a party dislikes the judge’s ruling and wishes to appeal based on the dislike alone. Usually, this is not a valid reason to file an appeal.
If, however, you believe the outcome of your case should be changed due to a legal mistake, a problem with evidence, or a judge’s error, then you may have a good reason to appeal.
Timelines for appeal are extremely short but important. It is crucial to contact an attorney right away so that you don’t inadvertently miss any deadlines.
If you are dissatisfied with the outcome of your family law case, and you want to explore the possibility of filing an appeal, it’s important to get in touch quickly.
