Need Help Reversing a Family Court Ruling?

Call Galveston Appellate Lawyer Tad Nelson at 409-904-0043 today!

Any time that a divorce or other legal matter involving family or civil litigation goes to trial, the court is charged with reviewing all of the information pertinent to the case for the purpose of issuing a sound ruling on the case.

In order for a ruling or court order to be lawful, its directives and mandates must fall within the guidelines of the Texas Family Law Code. Otherwise, a party to the court case could be wronged, or the judge could be found to have acted in error which constitutes grounds for an appeal.

The option to move forward with an appeal is key because jurors and judges are allowed a fair degree of discretion which, despite discretionary limitations, are known to result in mistakes.

Also, it’s not uncommon for procedural mistakes to occur, which can also be grounds for a civil or family court appeal.

Family Court Appellate Cases

Understanding the Appeals Process

civil appeals judge holding gavelThe civil appellate process is the legal remedy for addressing or challenging court rulings which are defective due to error.

As previously stated, judges and jurors commit errors with some judgments which, if identified, should be challenged via the appellate process.

Having a court order reversed or changed isn’t the easiest feat to accomplish. Due to the difficulties involved with “successfully” appealing a judge or court’s ruling, it’s best to consult with an attorney or law firm that has extensive experience pursuing appeals on behalf of damaged parties.

It’s not easy to reverse court decisions. Challenging a court order is extremely challenging for lawyers who lack an intricate knowledge of the processes involved in the appellate process.
