Appeal your divorce order decree.
There isn’t exactly a winner in a divorce. If there is little to no conflict in a separation between a couple with no kids that reaches an equitable resolution through mediation, there aren’t really any losers either. If you don’t feel like you got the Storybook divorce you deserve and are unhappy with the outcome of the divorce litigation you do have a narrow window of time to appeal the decree. In nearly all cases an appeal must be filed within 30 days of the divorce decree being entered. Contact the Law Offices of John P. McCall Jr. and schedule a free initial consultation with an aggressive and experienced Dallas divorce attorney to see if an appeal is possible for you.
Appealing a Divorce Decree or Judgement in Texas
This is the most common type of divorce case we find in Dallas. It is crucial to understand that there is only a very narrow window of time to appeal a divorce settlement in Texas. If you are not satisfied with the terms of your divorce agreement you only have 30 days to make an appeal after the judgement has been entered. Normally appeals can only be made on the grounds of abuse of discretion by the courts. If there is no legal basis for that claim then it is unlikely that it will make it through appellate court. In that setting, they do not hear evidence that was brought up during the trial, they only hear whether or not the law was followed by the lower court.
