Appealing a Family Law Ruling in MA

always happen. Many people walk away after a divorce ruling wondering
what went wrong. From child custody rulings to property division matters,
the results can often be disappointing and frustrating. With so many factors
impacting a judge's ruling on divorce issues, even the smallest detail
could sway or alter their opinion. That is why it is important that you
have a seasoned advocate on your side.
If you believe that a court ruling was improperly decided and want to appeal
the ruling given, we encourage you to reach out to our Wellesley divorce
lawyers right away. We can fight on your behalf and pursue a more reasonable outcome!
to discuss your case and start preparing for your appeal.
Types of Appellate Cases
Divorce or family law rulings are often appealed when they involve very
difficult or harsh decisions that one party disagrees with. This can come
into play for a variety of divorce and family law-related issues, and
can often leave people feeling powerless to change the decision.
These types of cases are commonly appealed when rulings are unfavorable:
Understanding the Appeals Process
To begin an appeal, you must be careful to file the right papers soon after
the original decision is made. You only have a short window to begin the
appeals process, and missing it could mean being barred from appealing at all.
After you have done this, the trial record will be opened and scrutinized.
All the points that you wish to be taken into question will be examined
to look for any errors made by the judge or attorneys. The whole process
can take an extensive amount of time and effort, but with a dedicated
Wellesley family lawyer to argue your case, the chances of getting the
decision altered are much higher.
