Family Law

Asked 5 months ago - Watts, Los Angeles, CA

I need to know how to take my case to Supreme Court? I have fought for my child for 12 years to no avail! With and without Layers! I have never been titled an unfit mom! I've seen murderers with more rights and success at visiting their children than me! I think it is because I am from the ghetto and dad is from Beverly Hills.

    Answered . Most Appeals are started by filing a Notice of Appeal with the court within 60 days of the decision. If your case decision is over 60 days old it may be time barred. As for the ghetto v. Beverly Hills, unfortunately I do believe that the more money one has to hire an attorney sometimes means the more justice that person obtains.

    Answered . To move a case to a higher court you would need to appeal the lower court's judgment or orders. Whether you have grounds to appeal is another issue. You would need to establish a basis for an appeal, i.e. establish that the judge made a mistake of law, of not considering evidence presented, or some other error that would entitle you to appeal. This is not something you can do on your own. To find out if you have grounds for an appeal you should consult directly with an attorney.
