Our firm prosecutes and defends a variety of family law appeals. Family law appeals can include appeals from a trial court case involving all family law matters. Each issue on appeal has its own set of hurdles but a common theme - Has the trial court committed an error that is large enough that an appeal court should make a correction? This can occur in cases such as a divorce, modification, termination, custody, visitation, child support, property division, in determining the character of community and separate property, premarital and prenuptial agreements, and grandparent rights. Our firm will gladly review your case and counsel you on our belief as to whether or not your case contains reversible error.
The trick to an appeal is to not miss your appellate deadlines which occur quickly. In some cases such as ones involving Family Protective Services, the appeal deadline is accelerated. So again, if you believe that there is reversible error in the the trial court's order after your trial you must ask swiftly to protect your rights.
Our appellate practice extends across our South Texas region. Generally, the location of the trial court is no barrier to representation at the appellate court because usually only one appellate court appearance is necessary for oral argument.
