At Weinberg, Kaplan & Smith, P.A., we offer experienced representation in divorce appeals throughout New Jersey. If you have received a divorce judgment and are not satisfied with the outcome, our experienced attorneys can help you file an appeal to your case. Our attorneys also defend clients against divorce decree appeals when they do not want the terms of their divorce to be changed.
Our attorneys will review and assess your case and discuss why an appeal can be requested. New Jersey has certain grounds for requesting an appellate court review and overturn a decision made by the trial court including:
- Failure to make sufficient findings of fact
- Failure to address all issues
- Failure to apply controlling law correctly
- Failure to conduct a full hearing when necessary
- Abuse its discretion by ruling contrary to the evidence
If you believe the court made an error in a matter relating to your divorce, you may be able to file an appeal.
Timing is crucial with divorce appeals. In New Jersey, you must file the appeal within 45 days of a final judgment. Additionally, if your ex-spouse is filing an appeal and you wish to cross-appeal, that must be submitted within 15 days of receiving the appeal notice.
Careful consideration is needed when deciding to appeal a divorce judgment. Working with an experienced divorce attorney can help you navigate the complex procedure. The attorneys at Weinberg, Kaplan & Smith, P.A. can help you with the appeals process and plan your best course of action.
