Defending And Initiating Appeals
Grounds for appeal may exist in cases where you believe an error of law was made in your final divorce decree or family law judgment. An appeal must be based upon a belief that the court failed to follow the law. Simply disagreeing with the judge’s decision does not provide legal grounds to appeal. An appeal offers a second chance to try your case if you were dissatisfied with the original decision.
Appeals can only be pursued after a final judgment
Or certain orders, has been rendered. The appeals process can be extremely complex. A number of technical steps must be taken to protect your rights before you can file; the time limit to file an appeal is extremely strict, for example. In particularly complicated cases, in order to avoid certain legal pitfalls, it may be prudent to consult with an appellate attorney while at the trial level.
When considering an appeal, it is crucial that you speak with a qualified Orange County divorce appeal attorney who can help you understand whether an appeal is the best course of action in your case. In some cases, there are more cost-effective and viable alternatives to filing an appeal, including a motion for reconsideration, a motion for a new trial or a post-judgment modification.
