What issues can you appeal?
There are a number of factors to consider when determining whether you have grounds to appeal a family court decision. The mistake you believe the judge made with your case must be an error in law or in fact.
Examples of errors in law and errors in fact are as followed:
- An error in law - An example of an error in law would be if a judge grants a parent, who has been convicted of domestic violence, full visitation rights when state law requires counseling before custody rights are awarded.
- An error in fact - An example of an error in fact would be if a judge awards sole custody to a parent who has been convicted of sexual assault on the child, when the evidence strongly suggests the other parent is far more suited to raise the child.
