Goshen Appeals Lawyer
Family law matters are often settled outside of court. It is very rare for one party to appeal a decision, but if the case goes to trial and someone is not happy with the outcome, they can try to appeal it. However, a person cannot appeal a decision simply because they are unhappy with it. There must be some error involved in order to appeal. When temporary orders are being discussed, errors are common.
When a judge has to make a decision when given little evidence, errors can occur. A Goshen appeals lawyer from The Law Office of Robert S. Sunshine, P.C. can help you with your case. Contact us today to get the best outcome possible.
Common Types of Family Law Appeals
The most common types of appeals include:
- Child custody appeals. These appeals may involve disputes over child custody arrangements, visitation rights, or parenting plans. The appealing party may argue that the court made an error in determining the best interests of the child or misapplied the relevant legal standards.
- Child support appeals. Appeals related to child support usually involve disagreements over the amount of support ordered or issues such as income imputation or deviation from child support guidelines. The appealing party may argue that the court’s calculations were incorrect.
- Divorce appeals. These appeals arise from contested divorces where one or both parties may disagree with the lower court’s decision on issues such as property division, spousal support, or a prenuptial agreement. The appealing party may claim that the court made an error in applying the law or abused its discretion.
- Paternity appeals. These appeals involve disputes over the legal determination of paternity, such as challenges to genetic testing results or claims that the court made an error in establishing or denying paternity.
- Adoption appeals. Appeals in adoption cases typically occur when a prospective adoptive parent or a birth parent challenges a court’s decision regarding the adoption. The appealing party may allege procedural errors, lack of evidence, or misinterpretation of the law.
- Modification appeals. There can also be appeals on requested modifications. After a final family law order is issued, either party may seek to modify the order based on a substantial change in circumstances. If the court denies the modification, the requesting party may appeal, alleging that the court’s decision was unreasonable.
