It is important to understand that a trial judge’s decision cannot be challenged simply because a party is unhappy with the outcome. In order to appeal the trial judge’s decision in a family law case, an error must have occurred. If the trial judge failed to properly apply the law to the facts of the case or decided the case based on an erroneous interpretation of the evidence, it may be possible to challenge the judge’s decision by appealing. Though there are many aspects of a divorce or family law case that can be appealed, the most common areas of challenge are:
~ Issues of property division
~ Issues of Child Custody or Parental Relocation
~ Determination of Spousal Support or Child Support
It is also critical to understand that an appeal must be filed within 30 days of the day that the trial court’s Judgment was entered into the court records.
Appeals are a time consuming, technical and expensive process in which the party who initiates the appeal must demonstrate that the trial judge made an erroneous decision by providing compelling legal arguments through the presentation of written briefs and oral argument.
