Somerset County Appeals Lawyers

What is the Appeals Process in New Jersey?

Appeals do not rest on new legal evidence. Rather, the appeal gives you another chance to make an argument for a different outcome.

In order to even get to an appeal, it must be shown that your case deserves further consideration for one of the following reasons:

  • The original judge did not follow standard legal principles.
  • There was insufficient evidence to support the judgment.
  • There was a misunderstanding of the facts of the case.
  • Other proper legal proceedings were not followed.

Appeals aren’t a matter of filing a motion or the right paperwork. They are a long and strenuous process that can take up to two years.

Don’t go through the appeals process alone. Contact Lane & Lane LLC at (908) 259-6673. We serve Central New Jersey, including Somerset County, Morris County, Union County, Middlesex County, and Essex County.

In some divorce and family law matters, the parties are able to agree on a settlement or custody matter without court involvement. Unfortunately, this is rarely the case. If disagreements could be solved so easily, it’s unlikely the couple would have to divorce in the first place.

If some aspect of your divorce settlement goes to court and receives a decision you can’t live with, it’s possible to have that decision overturned in an appeal. However, this is a difficult process.
