Appellate Considerations

You may have had to go to trial and received an order that you do not agree with. Post-trial motions and appeals have strict timelines and if you know you want to challenge the order, then you need to meet with an attorney right away.

It is critical to have a skilled attorney early in your case, especially if you think it will be contentious. At Nachlis & Fink, if we have to try a case, we work to preserve any potential appellate issues during your trial or pre-trial motions. This has an impact on your ability to be successful in obtaining post-trial relief.

Modifications After An Agreement Or Order

After resolution of a family law matter, clients frequently experience significant changes. These changes often require reassessing their agreements or court orders in order to address the developments. A change in circumstances may warrant a change in parenting time or custody or may be financial in nature and affect spousal support or child support.

Modifications are governed by law and different standards apply depending on what you want to modify. Consulting with a lawyer can help evaluate your options. As always, reaching an agreement outside of court is almost always advantageous to both parties.
