Family Law Appeals and Objections

There can be confusion surrounding the notion of appealing a divorce ruling.  One cannot appeal because they are unhappy with the ruling. If a judge made an error that adversely impacted the outcome of your case, you may have a basis for an appeal. The team of Barrocas, Mintz, Misuraca, and Record: Family Law & Mediation are well-versed in the complexities of the appeal process in New York State.

There are a few possible reasons for an appeal, including:

  • Mistakes by a judge pertaining to property division, such as an incorrect characterization or division of property
  • Mistakes by a judge in calculating child support, including current obligations or child support arrears
  • Other critical errors where a trial judge has abused his or her discretion

Objections must be filed within 30 days of receiving the order in person, or if received by mail, 35 days from the mailing date. The divorce ruling stands—and support must be paid—until or unless the judge signs a new order.

If you are you seeking a change from an unfavorable ruling in a divorce, child support case or other family law matter, you need to speak with an experienced New York State family law appeals lawyer. The team of Barrocas, Mintz, Misuraca, and Record: Family Law & Mediation can advise you of your rights, determine if you have grounds for an appeal, help you determine your best course of action, and handle your appeal if that is the recommended approach.
