Appealing judgement


#1

Appeals are to check for errors of procedure, meeaning what was done during the trial. Only judges an attorneys meet, there is some lenght to determine if the appeal upheld or dismiss. Sure you need to have attorney, if you feel that you may loose what you won in the beginning.

This I know, reading Law books definition about "appeal process"
Hope helps!

Dear lildancer:

Greetings. You can continue to file appeals until a final court makes a ruling. It can take a long time depending on appeals. I don’t know how you get an attorney without any funds. Good luck.

MY EX-HUSBAND HAS APPEALED THE PROPERTY SETTLEMENT AGREEMENT. WHEN THE JUDGE HANDED DOWN HIS DECISION HE STATED THAT ANYONE THAT WAS NOT HAPPY WITH HIS DECISION HAD THE RIGHT TO APPEAL TO A HIGHER COURT. HE HAS CONSTANTLY HARRASSED ME TRYING TO MAKE A BETTER DEAL FOR HIMSELF AND THREATENING TO FILE AN APPEAL WHICH HE PROCEEDED TO DO LAST FRIDAY. DO TO THE ONGOING LEGAL BATTLE I AM NOW INDIGENT. I HAVE NO MORE MONEY TO FIGHT THIS. COULD YOU PLEASE EXPLAIN THIS PROCESS? HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE? WHERE DOES IT TAKE PLACE? HOW DO I GO ABOUT GETTING A LAWYER WITH NO MONEY? I LIVE IN BRUNSWICK COUNTY. SINCERELY, PAT
