Family Law Appeals In Columbus
Appealing your Divorce Judgment
Following the issuance of a Judgment Entry or Decree of Divorce, certain court orders are made with respect to the division of marital property, spousal support, child support, or child custody. However, a bad result is not necessarily set in stone and may be appealed.
Objecting to Magistrate’s Decisions
Sometimes, a divorce, custody, or post-decree action is heard by a Magistrate. In order to preserve your case for an appeal, it is crucial that you speak with an attorney about objecting to the Magistrate’s Decision. The deadline for objecting to a Magistrate’s Decision is fourteen (14) days, and a failure to object on time could prevent your ability to file an appeal.
Objecting or Appealing administrative child support orders from the Child Support Enforcement Agency
Sometimes, child support orders are initially created by the Child Support Enforcement Agency. If there are errors in the child support worksheet prepared by the agency, or if there are circumstances that justify a deviation from the calculated amount, then the parties may object and challenge the orders in court.
