What You Should Know About Family Law Appeals in Georgia
Whether you are going through a divorce, a child custody matter, or any other type of family law dispute, a lot is at stake. There are few things more stressful or frustrating than receiving an unfavorable decision in a family law case. The good news is that you generally do have the right to file an appeal. That being said, there are strict rules and regulations for appealing a family law verdict in Georgia. You need to take immediate action to protect your rights. Our Atlanta family law appeal lawyers will:
- Preserve your grounds for appeal;
- Ensure notice is filed in a timely manner; and
- Help prepare a strong case for overturning an adverse decision.
It is important to emphasize that an appeal is not simply a re-hearing of the case. You cannot bring a winning appeal simply because you do not like the original decision. To bring a successful family law appeal in Georgia, an appellant (the party filing an appeal) has the burden of proving that the lower court made some type of error in rendering its decision. Some examples of grounds for appeal include improperly excluded evidence, material misrepresentations by the other party, and misapplication of law.
