Hunt Law Firm Dedicated To Family Law

Divorce and Child Custody Appellate Attorneys in Katy and all of Texas

Qualified Legal Advocates Tirelessly Pursuing the Outcome You Deserve

Sometimes, a divorce fails to resolve as it should, or a child custody decision does not seem just. While it is rare for both parties to feel completely satisfied with the outcome of a family law divorce or custody trial, discontent is not enough to warrant a legal change. However, if the final outcome of your case is truly unfavorable due to a critical mistake or abuse of the law, you have the right to challenge many decisions by seeking relief from a higher court.

At Hunt Law Firm, PLLC, G. Troy Pickett handles family law appeals, and with the entire team of lawyers at the firm assisting, we have the experience, skill, and understanding to handle the intricacies of your appellate case as seamlessly as possible. We understand the frustration and dissatisfaction of facing a biased or negative resolution and will fight to amend any injustices.

While we are based in Katy, in the Greater Houston area, Hunt Law Firm, PLLC has the ability to appeal any trial court decision from anywhere in Texas to any of the fourteen courts of appeals and the Supreme Court of Texas.

Under What Circumstances Can I File An Appeal?

You are allowed to appeal nearly any family law decision whether it is related to divorce, child custody or child support. No matter what issue you are appealing, typically the standard to get the decision overturned is proving that there was an abuse of discretion by the judge who decided your case.

It is crucial to remember the appeals process is not your chance to further prove any facts regarding your marriage. The appellate court will review the trial judge’s decision. A new trial isn’t conducted, though. Instead, the appellate court looks at the court reporter’s record, the court clerk’s record and most importantly, briefs prepared by the disputing parties’ attorneys.

The time to decide to make an appeal is very limited, so it is important to speak to an appellate attorney as soon after the decision as possible. After thirty days in most cases and less in others, you cannot appeal the decision at all.

The burden of proof is on the party making the appeal. The appellate attorneys at Hunt Law Firm, PLLC, will carefully review the trial court record before making a recommendation to proceed with an appeal of a trial court's decision.

Appellate law is a field that few lawyers choose to pursue. It requires an attorney who is able to conduct the demanding research and creative writing necessary to produce briefs, petitions, and arguments that will meet the criteria of appellate court judges. You do not have to keep the same lawyer you had for the trial or contested hearing. At Hunt Law Firm , PLLC, we often appeal trial court rulings for clients who started their cases with a different lawyer.

We know how draining and disheartening it can be to face an unfair reality. However, when you enlist the services of an experienced legal team, you are aligning yourself with devoted advocates who will go the distance on your behalf. Hunt Law Firm’s distinguished legal team will prioritize your family’s best interests above all else because we understand just how much is at stake.
