If you have been through a court proceeding such as family law, or civil rights and you have received an outcome that you believe to be unfair and wrong, then you may be able to obtain a better outcome through the process of an appeal. It is important to understand that the appeals process is specific and can be confusing. Appeals can only be made in response to an order or a judgment made by a judge. Any judgments made by an arbitrator or referee cannot be appealed in the state of New York. If you are seeking an appeal to a judgment that you have received, then you may greatly benefit from the legal assistance of Attorney Diane from the Law Office of Diane Martin-Grande.
There are several things that you must be aware of concerning appeals. First, the process can be costly, the fees for filing an appeal can cause financial hardship, and the cost for a copy of the transcript from your original case can also be very expensive. Second, you will only have 30 days from the time of service of the judgment or order to file an appeal. Finally, an appeal does not stay (stop or prevent) the execution of a judgment. For example, if you are facing a landlord/tenant dispute and a judgment was made against you to where you will need to move out of your current dwelling, then filing an appeal will not stop you from being forced to move out.
