New York family law is complicated. Sometimes, the trial court gets it wrong. Pursuing an appeal may be your final opportunity to obtain a different outcome.
I am Robert Dapelo, a Long Island divorce and appeals attorney based in Patchogue. I work hard to help my clients succeed. My experience spans not only family law, but also appellate law and procedure. I have spent more than 25 years as a litigator. As a result, I know how to identify and present strong grounds for appeal. I also help parties seeking to defend against an appeal.
Key Issues For Appeal
Family law appeals often center on critical decisions that have a far-reaching impact on your life. Examples of common subjects for appeal include:
- Child custody determinations
- Termination of parental rights
- Neglect or abandonment proceedings
- Property division or alimony in divorce
- Child support issues
Your chances of prevailing on appeal depend on the exact issue involved. For that reason, it is important to seek guidance before pursuing an appeal. You can turn to me for an honest assessment of your case.
Applying Well-Rounded Insight To Develop A Strategic Approach
An appeal is much different from proceedings at the trial court level. There are different legal standards and procedural rules. To some extent, appeals require a different skill set than trial work, especially as most of the arguments on appeal take place in writing.
