Family Law Appeals

New York City and Westchester Family Law Appeals

Providing appellate services to clients who need help appealing a trial court’s judgment in family law cases, Lisa Zeiderman has the superior research skills and experience necessary to effectively represent you to the New York Higher Courts.

Lisa handles appeals related to complex issues such as jurisdictional challenges, child custody and access, child support, spousal support, prenuptial or postnuptial agreement, property division, attorney’s fee awards and more.

The Purpose of an Appeal

The purpose of an appeal is to ask a higher court to reverse the trial court’s decision. The appellate court will review the records and may hear oral arguments to determine if the trial judge made a legal error that affected the final decision. The appellate court will not accept new evidence or listen to new witnesses as an appeal is not a re-trial of your case. 

The Timing of an Appeal

As soon as you receive an adverse ruling, it is best to seek legal advice immediately if you are considering an appeal.  This will ensure you are aware of all important deadlines and are given the appropriate and necessary guidance along the way.
