How Does the Appeals process work in California?

It is important to know that you have limited time to file an appeal in a family law matter. In order to protect your rights in your legal matter, it is vital to contact an Appellate Lawyer as soon as possible.

Sometimes, cases can be overturned. However, not all cases are subject to “appeal,” which is a technical term when the lower court’s ruling is not final yet and cannot be reviewed by the higher court until a later time. Not all family court judgments can be appealed. Only cases where there been some sort of legal error in the application of the law are able to be appealed or when there is not substantial evidence to justify the order made. Just because one of the parties is unhappy with the court’s ruling, does not make the case possible for an appeal. Atrocious abuses of the court’s discretion, mishandling of evidence, failures to make adequate findings of fact, or the failure of the court to hold a plenary hearing are a few examples in which an appeal may be granted or possible. Significant amount of research, preparation and analysis is involved in appellate cases, so it is important to have a skilled and experienced law firm to give you the best chances for a positive outcome in your family law appeal.

Some judgments or court orders are not appealable, but you can sometimes still request the appellate court review them.

Many times, especially when time is of the essence, an emergency “writ” can be filed with the appellate court, requesting immediate relief. We have experience in a broad range of writs both civil and family related, and we can help you determine if emergency writ relief would be appropriate for you.
