Family Law Appeals Attorneys in Somerset County
Fighting Unfavorable Decisions
Did you know that you can appeal a family court decision if you have valid grounds to do so? Simply being unhappy with the outcome of a case is not sufficient grounds for an appeal – and an ill-advised appeal can be costly. The appeals process is expensive and very lengthy. Despite these obstacles, there are situations in which a family law appeal may be the right choice. The best way to find out whether an adverse decision at trial is worth appealing is by discussing your situation with a knowledgeable Somerset County family law appeals attorney.
At Shimalla, Wechsler, Lepp & D’Onofrio, LLP, we take appellate cases for our existing clients as well as for those who were originally represented by other lawyers. We also defend our successful trial outcomes when these are challenged at the appellate level.
How We Can Serve You
We are experienced trial and appellate attorneys. In addition, three of our named partners are certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as Matrimonial Law Attorneys.
Trials and appeals are different processes. It is important that your attorney understands how to review trial records for legal errors. If you want to appeal, our lawyers will be candid about your opportunities for success. If we believe that you have a viable claim, we will closely examine the trial record and prepare strong arguments on your behalf.
We provide appellate representation in all family law matters, including:
- Domestic violence
- Property division
- Spousal support/alimony
- Child custody and parenting time
- Child support
When to File an Appeal
Some of the reasons people appeal family law cases include the judge making a legal error affecting the outcome of the case or a judge abusing his or her discretion. In addition, you may need to defend a case that was decided in your favor when the other party seeks to appeal the decision. Whatever the situation, our skills – both as counselors and advocates – make us a strong choice to handle family law appeals throughout New Jersey.
