Washington, D.C. Family Law Appeal Attorney

Let Us Help You Make a Family Law Appeal

A decision made by a Washington family law judge or jury can drastically affect your rights, your finances and your relationships from now and in the years to come. Although these parties try their best to ensure law is properly applied and followed in court, it is common for mistakes to be made. When that occurs, you can appeal your case to the Washington Court of Appeals or Washington Supreme Court.

If you have decided to appeal the outcome of your divorce, child custody dispute, or post-judgment modification, our Washington D.C. family law attorneys at DiPietro Law Group, PLLC can help. We can thoroughly review your case, determine all of your legal options, and develop a strong argument to receive a positive result.

Appealing a Family Law Case

An appeal is a legal action requested the court to review previous decisions made by a lower court. The goal of an appeal is that the higher court will rule differently, ideally in favor of the individual who filed the appeal. You cannot make an appeal just simply because you did not like the outcome of a court decision. Rather, appeals are made due to an “adverse action,” or a legal decision that did not favor you.

Legitimate reasons for an appeal include the following:

  • Errors made by the court
  • A misrepresentation or misunderstanding of the law
  • A misrepresentation or misunderstanding of the facts
  • The revelation of new or newly-relevant facts

There are two types of cases: direct appeals and discretionary appeals. Direct appeal means the person seeking the appeal will automatically be granted an appeal, while a discretionary appeals requires permission to file an appeal. It is imperative to discuss your case with an experienced appeals attorney.
