Filing an Appeal in a Family Court: The Process

The appeals process is lengthy and detailed. Issues regarding child custody, support, and other matters can be appealed when significant legal errors have occurred. A “Notice of Appeal” must be filed within 30 days of the final court order regarding the family law matter in question.

Grounds for an Appeal

An appeal is not always possible, but if a judge’s decision was not supported by the law, an appeal is the next step. Family law matters that are decided at trial give judges a great deal of discretion in deciding the final outcome. 

Need to appeal a court order? You have limited time. Contact Law Office of Thomas D. Bumgardner immediately at (704) 870-4779.

To successfully appeal a court order, it must be proven that the judge in the matter failed to comply with current state law, misinterpreted the law, or reached a decision that did not reflect the evidence and facts presented at trial, otherwise known as an abuse of discretion.
