Appeals


#1

Dear sickAtired:

Greetings. When you appeal, you generally do not have testimony, but instead just submit briefs and records to the court of appeals for review. The court reviews the record at trial and the order and makes a decision. The court sometimes hears from the parties through their attorney in oral arguments.

Thank you and good luck.

The trial court will rule on the attorney fees issue. If you are on the losing end of this ruling, you may challenge it in your appeal if you wish.

I have another question;in the event that I appeal the trial judge decisions; will the appellate courts allow me to ask that my ex-wife paid part or all of my attorney’s fees? I feel we would not be in this situation if she would have settled out of court. She is being prompted to continue this thing for whatever reason. Her are her attonery had know prove of the things they accused me of but my attorney had mounds of official documents proving her marital misconduct of being a swifty spender. I have already given her over $20,000.00, $10,000.00 of it was part of the assets they will decide on Oct 23. Not to mention the $20 some thousand I have paid my attorney.
