Denver Family Law Appeals Attorney
Helping Clients Appeal Family Law Rulings
If you disagree with the judge's decision in your family law case, you have a right to appeal your case to a higher court. It will be necessary for an attorney to review the case to determine if there are legal grounds to appeal. There is only a short period of time to file an appeal after the court's decision is final.
What Does an Appellate Attorney Do?
Your family law appeals lawyer can petition the court and judges to change their decisions by appealing the decisions made in your case. This change may come by a different decision being made altogether or by the current decision being pivoted to fit the appealed request.
Understanding Family Law Appeals
Law decisions can only be appealed in certain circumstances, such as:
- A rule has been misapplied
- The law was misinterpreted
- A judge abused their discretion
The appellate process is complex and winning an appeal is difficult. Family law judges have a great amount of discretion. The Appeals Court will most likely uphold the decision unless there is a clear error of law or an abuse of discretion.
At Frost & Beck, PC, our attorneys will honestly inform you of our opinion of your odds in winning your appeal so that you can make an informed decision as to whether appealing the order will be cost-effective.
Time Is of the Essence
In Colorado, a Notice of Appeal must be filed within 49 days of the final orders issued by the court. This time limit is strictly enforced. If you miss the deadline, you may permanently lose your right to file an appeal and will be bound by the trial court's decision. Once the notice is filed, the Appellate Court will set the briefing schedule.
Preparing the appeal will include the following:
- Obtain and review the transcript of the hearing
- Review and prepare the record
- Perform legal research
- Prepare legal briefs
