You have your day in Family court. The parties testify, their lawyers present evidence, and make legal arguments. At the conclusion of the trial, the court announces its decision. You may win in every respect, or you may be dissatisfied with the judgment of the court. Perhaps because it gives you less than what you had hoped for; or maybe the judgment goes against you entirely. When you are dissatisfied with the trial court’s decision, there may be a sound legal basis for having a higher court examine the record of the trial to search for reversible errors. David Heiman has successfully handled appeals, and related procedures, for more than two decades. He can advise you about your appellate options.
Please bear in mind that when you are considering either an appeal, an application for a writ, or a related procedure, time is always a very important consideration. You need to start moving on your appeal right away because the mere passage of time will limit your ability to seek an appellate remedy, unless specific steps are taken during prescribed time periods. Sometimes, all of those steps are taken in just the appellate court, but often, there are steps that have to first be taken in the trial court, shortly after the time when the trial judge signs an order. It can be confusing, even to lawyers who don’t have adequate experience handling appeals. We have the experience to help cut through that confusion for you.
