Do You Need To Appeal A Family Law Decision?
In all realms of the law, including family law matters such as child custody and child support, we trust the courts to provide clarity and fairness on our legal matters.

When An Appeal In Your New Jersey Family Law Matter Is Warranted
It’s common to not be 100% satisfied with a judge’s determination in a family law matter, but clients should be strategic about knowing when an appeal is called for. At our firm, we can review your case and determine whether filing an appeal serves your best interests.
Common reasons to file a family law appeal in New Jersey include:
- There was information that the judge did not consider.
- There was inadmissible evidence introduced into the original case.
- There was bias against one party in the original case.
- There was a critical error in the legal procedure of the original case.
Once an appellate judge hears arguments, there can be three possible decisions: (1) they can uphold the original determination, (2) they can reverse (or alter) the original determination, or (3) they can send the case back down to the lower court for reconsideration (with instruction).
