Appealing a decision in Family Court

Asked over 1 year ago - Lindenhurst, NY

The Appellate court decisions are not based on any kind of permission from Family Court right?

In other words if family court only gives them permission-- they will reverse it to the petitioners request.

    Answered . Atty. Tebano outlines the procedural rules and your rights with exceptional clarity. The rules are very clear as to time frames and other requirements. I strongly suggest that you contact a local attorney immediately to assist you in this process. Be careful, you do not want to miss any deadlines. Good luck.

    Answered . You don't need permission from Family Court to file an appeal. Once you get an adverse decision from Family Court, you have 30-days from the date that you receive the decision to file your Notice of Appeal and then you have 9 months to perfect the appeal. As for your last statement, I have no idea what you mean regarding the reversal and family court permission. It makes no sense.

    Answered . The Family Court has no say on whether or not you can appeal a decision. You have 30 days from the date of receiving decision to file a Notice of Appeal - THIS IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT - DO NOT MISS THIS DEADLINE!!! You did not state any of the facts of your case. If you are looking for a clearer answer as to your likelihood of winning on appeal, please discuss with an attorney. FYI - appeals are an expensive undertaking and a lengthy process so please be sure you are ready to appeal with the right attorney. douglas@kepanislaw.com
