Navigating the legal system effectively is not a simple process. Legal representatives go through extensive education and training in their field, as well as training specific to their state. To be respected and effective, they must understand the ins and outs for each particular situation. Choosing an experienced attorney to represent your best interests in any family related legal action is invaluable. While you may have the best intentions, there are guidelines that have been established and must be followed. This can be frustrating when the results are not what you hoped, but the purpose of the guidelines is to protect you, as well. When proper discretion does not appear to have been used to arrive at your ruling, it might be best to consider filing an appeal. Simply being dissatisfied with a ruling is not enough. Particular requirements must be met and proper steps must be taken in order for an appeal to be considered valid.
In Southeastern Pennsylvania, clients turn to Attorney Jack A. Rounick, LLC, for a wealth of knowledge and experience in Pennsylvania Family Law. An appeals process is not something that a layperson can pursue with confidence on their own, and not all attorneys have the expertise necessary to obtain results for a client. Attorney Jack Rounick can advise whether an appeal would even be an appropriate undertaking to begin with. If grounds are discovered that allow a client to contest the ruling from a family court, an effective appeal will need to be filed with the appropriate appellate court. Your attorney becomes vital in persuading the court that errors were made in your case, and giving reasons why your ruling should be changed.
We encourage a personal consultation with our team rather than doing your own legal representation. We can assist you in ensuring that your rights are preserved and well-represented throughout the proceedings. Rulings that are in error with respect to the law or that are out of line with regard to proper discretion by the judge must be appealed properly and promptly. By having us represent you from the beginning, you will know that you have someone on your side who knows the ins and outs of Family Law in the State of Pennsylvania. Then in the rare case that it becomes necessary, we will be prepared with the proof to file your appeal. It is a difficult process, but with good service, it isn’t impossible.
An appeal is not a new case, but a review of the information that has already been presented and ruled on. Contact us for representation if you feel that you haven’t received a fair ruling. Better yet, let us help you each step along the way to achieve a positive experience, and a fair outcome.
