Appeals/Petitions For Review
It is possible to appeal the outcome of your divorce, but acting quickly is critical. The law creates firm deadlines for appeals and petitions for review. If you miss a deadline, you miss your opportunity to take action.
At Jolein A. Harro, P.C., in Littleton and Steamboat Springs, Colorado, we have the capacity to act quickly on your behalf. We can appeal a negative outcome or file a petition for review, as well as respond to these motions.
There are several reasons that a person can appeal a divorce in Colorado:
- The court erred in a determination of the law.
- The court’s analysis was clearly erroneous in a matter of fact.
When our law firm handles your appeal, we begin by obtaining a transcript of the trial record. We review the trial record thoroughly and completely for legal and factual problems. We pursue justice on your behalf, and may appeal to the Supreme Court of Colorado, if necessary.
What You Should Know About Your Appeal
Appealing an order does not negate an existing order. You may have to follow an existing order while the appeal is pending. Often, you must post a bond if the underlying judgment includes paying money. Contact our office to find out what we can do to help.
