After your trial concludes, if you are not satisfied with the result, there may be a legal basis for an appeal. On the other hand, you may be perfectly content with the trial judge’s decision, but you may find yourself in the appellate courts after the other side notes an appeal. Either way, appeals can only be based on legal errors. You cannot testify or present new evidence to an appellate court. I regularly follow the appellate courts’ decisions on family law cases and will work with you to uncover any legal issues with the trial court’s decision or defend you against a challenge to a court’s decision in your favor.
