At LLM Family Law, our team is highly skilled in providing clients with legal representation and guidance. Dealing with family law matters can be extremely complex; however, we do everything it takes to guide the courts into making the best decision. Unfortunately, there are times when judges make mistakes. Sometimes these mistakes can be corrected with subsequent motions, such as a motion to reconsider, a motion for new trial, or a motion to set aside the judgment. If these remedies do not succeed or are unavailable, your next option may be to seek review in the Court of Appeal by way of an appeal or a writ.
Our team is highly skilled in handling these matters and are here to help you every step of the way. If you are in need of a reputable appeals and writs family lawyer, don’t hesitate to reach out to our team.
An appeal is a request for a higher court (usually the Court of Appeal) to reverse or change a decision made by the trial court. The Court of Appeal will review your case to determine if the trial judge made a reversible mistake that impacted the challenged decision.
Not all decisions are appealable, and you only have a short period of time to file an appeal; once that period ends, you are barred from appealing. Therefore, it is essential to contact an appellate lawyer who specializes in family law cases as soon as possible, so they are able to provide you with the legal help that you need.
It is even occasionally advisable to consult with an appellate lawyer before or during the trial or motion, to ensure that a proper record is made, and certain procedural steps are taken, to bolster your chance of success on an appeal, should one be necessary.
If you are in need of an appellate lawyer who specializes in family lawy, feel free to contact our team for more information.
A writ is an order from a higher court (again, usually the Court of Appeal) directing the trial court to take (or refrain from taking) a certain action during an ongoing court proceeding. A writ allows the appellate court to quickly intervene in a trial court proceeding in situations when an appeal is not permitted or would be inadequate (e.g., if immediate relief is needed to prevent irreparable harm), as well as in certain proceedings specified by statute.
A writ proceeding is initiated when a party files a writ petition with the appellate court. The appellate court has no obligation to entertain a writ petition, and most writ petitions are summarily denied. An attorney can help you navigate the complicated process of preparing and filing a writ petition that aims to convince the appellate court that your issue merits their consideration and immediate action.
