I have a 1 yr. anti-harassment order issued by the King Co. Superior Court. If I understand correctly, I have no 12 day window to file an action to reconsider, because it was issued by an actual KCSC judge, as opposed to if it were issued in district court by a commissioner.
I understand I could file an appeal in appellate court, however I'm told that is costly (5-10$k), & they accept no new evidence or testimony; they only review the original hearing transcripts.
So why is it so expensive? Other than the filing fee itself, & my attorney's fee for filing on my behalf, does anyone have to do anything other than wait for an outcome? Am I paying for the court's actual expenses for time (wages) used to review the case? Could someone please breakdown the process & costs involved?
