Appeals

Family Law Appeals Attorney in Virginia, Maryland and Washington, D.C.

At DiPietro Family Law Group, our experience in complex family law cases can help our Virginia family law clients navigate the appeals process. Dissatisfaction with the outcome of a trial does not necessarily constitute grounds for appeal. Usually, appeals are available to family law matters only when there has been an error of law committed by the trial court. We can analyze your case and determine if an appeal is appropriate.  Cases litigated in the Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Courts in Virginia often have an automatic right to a new trial in Circuit Court, even if a case is settled.  We can explain the differences between an appeal to a Circuit Court and an appeal from a Circuit Court to the Virginia Court of Appeals.

Rulings in family law cases have a profound impact on people’s lives.  Erroneous applications of the law during your trial can have lasting negative repercussions on your finances, your livelihood and your children. An experienced family law attorney can protect your rights on appeal.

The lawyers at DiPietro Family Law Group can assist you in reviewing and analyzing your appellate options. Contact us today to schedule your initial consultation. We will take the time to walk you through what to expect during the process.
