Appealing your case may be the only way to correct a ruling in the trial court. You can and usually should file a post trial motion to ask the court to reconsider. This makes sure the trial court has an adequate opportunity to get it right. Filing a post judgment motion will also help you preserve all of your issues for appeal. And if you don't preserve the issues for appeal, the appellate court won't let you raise them later. Get a good appeals attorney and make sure you file on time. Good appeals attorneys are hard to find. They must be experienced and excellent writers. If you are not happy with your divorce decree or custody support order call a competent appeal attorney immediately to make sure you don't lose your appeal just for filing late.
