If you have recently gone through a family law case in South Carolina and received an unfavorable outcome, an appeal may be your next best step.

An appeal is a legal process that allows a higher court to review a decision made by a lower court. This process can be complex and requires the assistance of an experienced family law attorney.

At our firm, we understand that appealing a family law case can be stressful and emotional. Our team of knowledgeable attorneys is here to help guide you through the appeals process and work diligently to overturn the lower court's decision.

Some common family law cases that can lead to an appeal include:

  • Divorce decree
  • Child custody
  • Child support
  • Property division
  • Spousal support
  • Rule to Show Cause (Contempt Action)

It is important to note that there are strict time limits that must be followed to preserve your right to appeal. I can help ensure that your appeal is filed correctly and within the appropriate timeframe.  If you have gotten a final order you wish to appeal, it is imperative that you contact an attorney as soon as possible so that you do not miss the limited timeframe that you have to appeal.  

Once an appeal is filed, the higher court will review the case and may request arguments from both parties involved. I will work tirelessly to prepare the strongest possible case for you and present it to the court.

It is important to keep in mind that an appeal does not guarantee a different outcome. The goal of an appeal is to persuade the higher court that the original decision made by the lower court was incorrect.
