Information on Appeals in New York

Appealing a New York City Divorce

At the end of the divorce process, you will either settle on terms with your spouse or the judge will issue a ruling. In either case, you will be legally bound to abide by the terms of your final decree of divorce, with the liability of penalties such as wage garnishment, driver's license suspension or jail if your former spouse has to seek judicial enforcement of court orders against you. If you are dissatisfied with the outcome of your divorce, Hindin Deutsch, P.C. can represent you in filing an appeal of the decision. We offer dynamic legal representation to our clients, and you will have our reputation as a heavy weight in the field of same sex family law on your side.

An appeal is not a new trial. You will be submitting the decision of the family law judge to the appeals court for a review, to determine whether there were procedural or legal errors which may have prejudiced the trial against you. It is not an opportunity to submit new evidence or arguments, but simply a request to have a higher court decide on the fairness of the original decision. The result of an appeal is either to modify or overturn the verdict of the lower court. It is not advisable to represent yourself in a divorce, and this is especially true in the context of appellate law, which is far more complex than most other areas of practice.
