How Appeals Work

The courts do their best to make fair judgments. However, mistakes are made, and you may find that you disagree with a judge's ruling. When this happens, you have the option to file an appeal. However, the appeals process is complicated. All procedural requirements must be strictly followed. It is recommended that you work closely with Burns Law Office.

After your case has been heard, the appellate judges will then render a decision. They may reverse and remand the previous decision or affirm the earlier decision. Depending on your situation, they may make a judgment that is a combination of both, reversing some elements of the previous order while affirming others.

The appeals process includes:

  • Preparing and filing all appeals documents with the court
  • Paying a filing fee
  • Correctly and officially serving the appeal to the other party involved
  • Required mediation
  • A hearing in the Appellate Court if mediation fails
  • Arguing the case in front of three appellate judges

We Know How the Appellate Courts Work

While the appeals process may seem straightforward, it requires close attention to detail and an aggressive approach. Family court judgments are rarely overturned.
