Making A Family Law Appeal

If you have decided to appeal the outcome of a contested or high-asset divorce, property division determination or post-judgment modification, you can benefit from the experience and skills of a Georgia appeals lawyer with a focus in divorce and family law.

Our appellate practice at Hill Macdonald, LLC, can help. Our divorce appeals attorneys in Marietta have more than 25 years of combined experience offering quality appeals representation through thorough research, thoughtful writing and persuasive arguments to the Supreme Court of Georgia and the Georgia Court of Appeals.

A final divorce decree need not be considered final. A court may have committed technical errors during a trial. Those errors may result in the court reaching the wrong conclusion that makes an appeal an advisable course of action. Or you may have received a positive result and your ex-spouse wishes to take it away through an appeal.
