CHILD CUSTODY & VISITATION APPEALS
Were you denied child custody or visitation rights?
Do You Have Grounds for a Child Custody or Visitation Appeal?
Making an appeal against a child custody and visitation ruling can only be done after the final judgment. Considering the fact that family law cases encompass multiple trials or hearings based on a variety of issues and several court orders, it may be a considerable amount of time before you can appeal your case.
It’s worth noting that there is one thing that cannot be appealed: temporary child custody orders. Temporary orders cannot be appealed because they are not final judgments. Unfortunately, you will have only one chance to argue your side of the case when it comes to your child’s temporary arrangements. Thankfully, temporary orders should have no effect on the final ruling of the case.
If you’re in the middle of a case and you’re already considering an appeal, make sure your attorney is taking steps to preserve (or record) any mistakes made by the judge or the court.
What are the Chances of a Successful Appeal?
If you have a viable reason for the appeal and the right attorney on your side, you’ll have a higher chance that your appeal will be considered or upheld. However, it’s not easy to get a child custody and visitation judgment reversed. Most of these cases fall under the discretion of the court as long as the rules of law are upheld and nothing serious has been misinterpreted in the original case.
This is all about the best interest of the child, so whatever information is provided during the original child custody and visitation case is crucial to the child and to an appeal. No additional information can be presented in appellate court.
