Grounds for Divorce Appeals in Somerset County

If you think that the court made an erroneous decision in a matter pertaining to your divorce, you can file an appeal. An appeal is a request for an appellate court to review and overturn the decision made by the trial court that handled your divorce.

In New Jersey, you may file an appeal if you believe the trial court:

  • Failed to make sufficient findings of fact
  • Failed to address all issues
  • Failed to apply controlling law correctly
  • Failed to conduct a full hearing when necessary
  • Abused its discretion by ruling contrary to the evidence

It is often tough to reverse a decision, as the law generally favors the finality of a divorce judgment. To avoid wasting time and money, it is critical to consult with a team of experienced attorneys to determine if you have appropriate grounds to file an appeal.

The Timing of a Divorce Appeal

If you wish to appeal your divorce decree, it is important to do it as soon as possible after your divorce is finalized. In New Jersey, you must file an appeal within 45 days of the entry of a final judgment. If you miss this deadline, you have an additional 30 days to request permission to file an appeal late, which may or may not be granted.

In the event that your ex-spouse files an appeal and you would like to cross-appeal, you must do so within 15 days of receiving the Notice of Appeal.
