Divorce & Family Law Appeals
Newport Beach Divorce Attorneys
Even if you have a strong case, the courts may not always rule in your
favor. However, you aren’t out of options if this happens. An experienced
Newport Beach family law attorney can help you appeal a divorce, child custody, or other family law ruling.
However, you must act quickly. Depending on the circumstances of your case,
you generally have only 60 days from the “Notice of Entry of Judgment”
to file your appeal. For this reason, it is especially helpful to retain
a Certified Family Law Specialist such as Attorney Mitzner, who can work
to develop a strong case on your behalf with this limited time.

What Are Grounds for Appealing a Divorce?
Generally speaking, you are not able to appeal a divorce judgment simply
because you are unhappy with the results. However, you do have strong
grounds for an appeal if you can prove that the judge made a mistake which
affected the outcome of the case, referred to as a material legal error.
You may have grounds for an appeal if you can prove that the judge:
- Disallowed valid evidence
- Allowed evidence that should not have been admitted
- Misinterpreted the law
- Abused their discretion
In most cases, the appellate process can take between one and two years
to complete. Once the appeal is upheld, the appellate court will often
send the case back for retrial, thus extending the timetable even more.
For this reason, it is crucial to consult with your Newport Beach family
lawyer to make sure you have strong grounds for an appeal before you file.
