Was Your Court Ruling Unjust? Consider Filing An Appeal.

The appeal process can be confusing and time-consuming. However, there are times when the court simply makes a mistake, and filing an appeal is the only way to right a wrong and seek the just decision that you deserve. If an error was made regarding your divorce decree or other family law court decision, the results could affect every aspect of your life, from your finances to how often you see your children.

Appealing a lower court’s decision may take time, money and effort, but it could be the right decision for you. When seeking an appeal, the firm to call is P. Mars Scott Law Offices. Our attorneys have nearly 50 combined years of legal experience, and our firm is respected by judges and other attorneys in the Missoula area. When you hire us, you can expect skilled and zealous legal advocacy throughout the duration of your case.

Which Family Law Court Rulings Can Be Appealed?

In family law, common appeals involve:

  • Parenting plan determinations
  • The amount of child support awarded
  • The amount or duration of spousal support (alimony) awarded
  • The division of marital property
  • Guardianship decisions
  • Designation of premarital, gifted or inherited property

We have the knowledge, experience and reliability to assist you with every step of your case.

It Is Important To Work With An Experienced Appellate Attorney

Many appeals can be decided based solely on the briefs submitted. However, more complex matters may require “oral argument” in front of a panel of judges. This is essentially a formal discussion of the relevant legal principles between the attorneys and the judges hearing the case. We are highly skilled in appellate law and ready to engage in oral arguments whenever necessary.
