family law appeals
Bringing or Defending an Appeal
An appeal may be brought to challenge an error in a family court ruling where there was insufficient evidence to support the ruling, where the court abused its discretion, or where the court made an error in law.
The process is done on written briefing, followed by a brief oral argument at the court of appeal before a panel of three justices. The timelines are statutorily based, and once the timeline to bring your appeal is missed, it cannot be corrected. Promptly contact appellate counsel upon receiving your ruling if you believe the trial court may have made an error in your case.
