FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THE APPEALS PROCESS

Perhaps you have gone through the trial process and are dissatisfied with your ruling, feeling it is unjust or you are standing up for what is reasonable and fair. Perhaps you are considering appealing your court case to the Second Circuit Federal Court of New York. Consider these frequently asked questions when contemplating an appeal.

Am I required to have a lawyer for my appeal?

You're never required to have a lawyer for an appeal, however, the appeal process can be very confusing and technical. Working with a lawyer throughout your appeal eliminates errors, missed deadlines, and poor procedure during this highly complicated process. An appeals lawyer has experience working with the specific system in which you wish to have your ruling overturned.

What happens if all court rules are not complied with?

By not following specific court rules and deadlines, the party filing the appeal may lose the opportunity to bring their case before the judges. All steps in the appeals process need to be executed in a timely manner and to the court's exacting specifications.

Are there further steps after appealing to Second Circuit Federal Court?

After receiving a ruling from the appellate court, the case will either be overturned and returned to a lower court where the ruling originated from for amendments, or the case will be upheld. If the ruling is upheld, it is possible to continue appealing the ruling to higher courts.
