Divorce & Family Law Appeals

Newport Beach 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 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.

Are you considering appealing your divorce or child custody ruling? Contact The Law Offices of Marc E. Mitzner today for your free case evaluation.

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 lawyer to make sure you have strong grounds for an appeal before you file.
