Take a Second Look
Because of the nature of family law cases, one party often feels as though they "lost" when a decision is not exactly what they had hoped for. This is especially true if your case involves not being able to see or spend time with children or loved ones as much as you would like.
Depending on the circumstances of your case, you may be able to file a specific motion that asks the court to re-examine your decision and possibly change or cancel orders that have been issued. To file one of these motions, it is strongly advised that you have an experienced attorney on your side representing your interest.
Understanding Your Options
The most common form of appeal in family law cases is referred to as a motion for reconsideration.
If you are seeking to file a motion for reconsideration:
You need to have new evidence, facts, or circumstances that can be provided to the court
You must file your motion within 10 days of the original judgement/verdict
Provide a specific argument as to why your case needs to be reexamined
If you are seeking a motion to set aside an order or judgment, there are specific requirements necessary to qualify for this appeals process.
