If you’re unhappy with the ruling issued in your family law case, you may be able to appeal the decision. However, bringing a case before the Appellate Division must be done promptly. So long as the decision is considered final, a Notice of Appeal must be filed within 45 days of the date of the Order or Judgment. Do not wait to align yourself with a New Jersey family law attorney as quickly as possible.
If you are wanting to appeal the decision in your family law case, contact our Ronald Lieberman, a New Jersey appellate lawyer at Rigden Lieberman, LLC, to start discussing your options.
Am I Eligible to File an Appeal in New Jersey?
If you have reason to believe a mistake or error was made during trial, and this error adversely affected the outcome of your case, you may be able to appeal the decision.
An appeal is your opportunity to prove to an appellate panel of judges that an error occurred, and the lower court’s decision should be reversed as a result.
Will I Get a New Trial?
Appeals are not new trials, nor will you be able to argue your case all over again. They are meant to correct reversible errors.
You may file an appeal if you have reason to believe that:
- The judge’s decision went against the weight of the evidence
- The judge’s decision was contrary to existing statute, rule, or case law
- Incorrect ruling from a judge on a motion or objection
- Prejudicial evidence or witness testimony
- Inadmissible evidence was allowed in court
- The judge was biased
Why Do You Need an Appellate Lawyer?
Cases brought to the Appellate Division are handled much differently than those presented before a trial court judge. Without an appellate lawyer, you may find it much more difficult to effectively argue your case. This is your one chance to overturn an unfair result; don’t risk it by using an attorney who may be unfamiliar with complex appellate court procedures.
What you can present on appeal is restricted to that which has already been presented at trial or in a motion. The process involves having the appellate judges review the decision made by a lower court judge, and it requires special attention from the attorney regarding specific processes only used in appellate court.

Filing an appeal must be done quickly. At Rigden Lieberman, LLC, Ronald Lieberman will take swift action to ensure your appeal is handled within the 45-day limit.
