Houston Family Law Appellate Lawyers
Almost any decision made in family courts may be appealed, if there were procedural errors that require the decision to be overturned as a matter of law or if the court abused its discretion. Either way, the person filing the appeal has the burden to prove the decision should be overturned.
Overturning family court rulings is very difficult and time consuming, taking months or, in some cases, years. It can also be costly. Therefore, you want to hire an attorney who understands the different rules and procedures involved in appellate law and has plenty of experience appealing family court decisions. Your appellate lawyer should thoroughly review the court’s record in your case in order to determine if there are grounds for appeal because simply being unhappy with the outcome of your case or a Judge’s decision is not grounds for appeal.
