Helping decide the right course of action for you and your family.
In some instances when you are involved in a family law proceeding, you may feel that the court has made a mistake or that the decision that has been reached is unfair or inequitable. In these instances, you may be faced with the hard decision of whether to take an appeal of the court’s decision. An appeal of a final or interim (interlocutory) decision of the Family Court involves a proceeding in which an application is made to the Appellate Court to review the decision of the lower court. The most common reasons to appeal a Family Court decision are because (1) the court failed to make adequate findings in your case, (2) failed to follow the law, (3) failed to conduct a hearing or (4) because the court abused its discretion.
Appeals can be time-consuming and costly. Fraser Family Law Office has extensive experience in handling family law appeals and can guide you in terms of whether an appeal is the right course of action for you and your family.
