Fathers: You Can Appeal an Unjust Divorce Case

AdobeStock_Father son fishing outdoors grass.jpegAlthough the laws are changing in favor of more equal treatment in divorce courts throughout the country, many fathers still feel like their wives are getting an unfair advantage in the courtroom.

You Have Rights

When this happens, many men feel like there's nothing they can do to protect their rights and make sure they get a fair shake. However, depending on the case, you might be able to appeal. With an appeal, the aspects of the case that were unfair could be re-heard, potentially with a totally different result.

Appeal Basics

An appeal is a petition to the court to re-try all or part of a case. Not every unfavorable court action can rise to the level of a viable appeal. There has to be some specific, legally acceptable reason for an appeal to be heard, something more than just not agreeing with the outcome.

What Should You Do?

If you feel like your case might be worthy of an appeal, you should talk to a lawyer. Do it right away, as there are strict time limits on bringing this type of appeal.

An experienced attorney can look over your case to determine whether you have a viable appeal, and file the appropriate paperwork right away.

If you do get an appeal, the court will reconsider certain aspects of your case. Perhaps child custody or the asset split was handled unfairly. It is possible that your case will end up with a different result.

The most important thing is to make the effort right away, before it's too late. And do not lose hope.
