Nope. That is finished. Late filing of an appeal is jurisdictional. You might try a motion for a late filing. You explanation will need to be very good. Check with a law library
Appeals deadlines are jurisdictional. If you miss the deadline they cannot be heard
This is for general information only. Nothing in this information should be construed as creating an attorney-client relationship nor shall any of this information be construed as providing legal advice. Laws change over time and differ from state to state. These answers are based on California Law.Applicability of the legal principles discussed may differ substantially in individual situations. You should not act upon the information presented herein without consulting an attorney about your particular situation. No attorney-client relationship is established.
Two possible avenues to explore:
First, was the judgment that attempted to appeal from, actually an appealable judgment? Family law procedures can be tricky when it comes to whether a document called a "judgment" is actually a final judgment for appeal purposes. if it was not, you might still be able to appeal the same issues from a latter judgment.
Second, are you sure that the Court of Appeal correctly found that your appeal was untimely? Mistakes happen, even at the Court of Appeal, and in some circumstances the deadline for filing an appeal can be difficult to accurately calculate.
I recommend that you retain an appellate law specialist for a consultation on these issues.
