Family Law Appeals
Additionally, the state appellate courts require appellate briefs to contain certain required sections of information that appellate attorneys should be very familiar with. The courts also require a statement of the issues and an experienced attorney will have handled hundreds, if not thousands, of cases that provide examples of what kinds of issues are appealable and should be brought to the appellate court’s attention. Finally, there are particular standards of review that apply to different types of issues, and an experienced attorney will be able to view your case through the lens of the legal standard that the appellate court will apply.
How long does it take for an appeal to proceed from start to finish?
It depends. Most family law cases are first appealed to a District Judge and then to the Idaho Supreme Court if necessary. This process can take months depending on the availability of the Court to conduct oral arguments.
