Family law and divorce cases can be painful. There is often a rush to settle things as fast as possible. This haste means that information can be overlooked, the parties in the case can be misrepresented and unfair hasty decisions made. An appeal may take more time and re-open old wounds but it may be the best way to secure your future if the final judgment was hasty and unfair.
What Are Grounds for Appeal?
You may not be happy with the final outcome of your divorce, but that is not in and of itself grounds for appeal. There must be some legal issue that can be invoked to re-open the case. This is not a re-trial of the case, but a re-examination of particular issues that may have been overlooked in the trial proceedings.
Here are some of the reasons an appeal might be possible:
- Someone committed fraud in the proceedings.
- Significant assets were hidden from the court.
- The court committed a procedural error.
- The judge may have abused his discretion in the final decision.
