Austin Area and Central Texas Family Law Appeals Lawyers
Your final divorce decree and/or custody order may not be the final say in your court case. Once a final order has been signed by the court, you have a right to appeal your final order to the Court of Appeals and potentially the Texas Supreme Court. As is the case in every other area of the law, judges sometimes reach the wrong decision in your case giving you no other option but to appeal to an appellate court. In other instances, you may be happy with the outcome, but your spouse is not satisfied with the outcome and decides to appeal. However, if you are considering filing an appeal, or your spouse or partner has filed an appeal, important deadlines apply, and it is critical that you meet with an experienced lawyer as soon as possible so that your interests are protected.
Filing an appeal of a final order is a complex, often lengthy process, and should not be taken lightly. The appeals process will involve several steps, all of which are critical to the process and potentially fatal to your case if handled improperly. The appellate court must be presented with a concise and well researched legal argument about why the original decision should be overturned or sustained. If handled improperly, the appellate process could be just as frustrating as your original trial.
