If you are not satisfied with the outcome of your divorce, custody, or support case decision, you may have the right to appeal the decision and outcome. The appeal is the next stage in the legal process after a trial when one party believes that an error was made by the court or an attorney during the proceedings. The appeals process is one of the most challenging in the practice of family law, especially when the Georgia Court of Appeals or Georgia Supreme Court is involved. Georgia law grants the right to appeal certain cases like child support, meaning that you can automatically file a valid appeal. Other cases are subject to more discretionary appeal procedures. While many possible issues may be raised in an appeal, the most common are:
The appeal process can be lengthy and frustrating. To have a chance of succeeding, an appeal must be carefully researched, well written, and persuasively argued. The attorneys at Stearns-Montgomery & Proctor review all case information in pursuit of innovative, practical solutions that will give you the best chance to win your appeal. You generally have 30 days to appeal, so you need to quickly engage an attorney.
