Family Law Attorney for Appeals
Divorce and Child Custody Appeals in Houston, TX
Family law attorney John K. Grubb is not only a seasoned high asset divorce lawyer, but he is board certified in Civil Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization offering aggressive divorce representation. Over his 30-plus year career, he has appealed many cases to the Court of Appeals and Texas Supreme Court. You do not need to keep your former divorce attorney for an appeal; you should investigate lawyers to find an attorney most qualified to appeal a family law case.
When Can a Divorce in Texas Be Appealed?
Texas does permit a party who is dissatisfied with a Trial Court’s final judgment to appeal, the case, to the Court of Appeals and in certain cases to apply to the Texas Supreme Court for a Writ of Error. You cannot appeal a case simply because you do not like the results. Instead, an appeal must be based on a contention that the Trial Judge misapplied the law or the Trial Judge abused the Judge’s discretion
