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.
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.
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.
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. firstname.lastname@example.org
