Navigating Family Law Appeals

When you want what is best for yourself and your family, it can be frustrating when the outcome of a divorce or other family law matter does not provide you with the results you are looking for. Filing an appeal may grant you a new opportunity to pursue a different outcome in your family law issue, but going through the Minnesota Court of Appeals will require the guidance of a skilled family law attorney.

The Minnesota lawyers of Frieders & Kuhn, L.L.P., have been representing clients in their family law concerns since 1933, and our decades of experience can be essential to protecting your best interests. It can be difficult to convince the Court of Appeals to reverse a court’s decision, so you will need to be sure you are doing everything you can to present your strongest case for an appeal.

Can You Appeal A Divorce In Minnesota?

If you are not satisfied with the decision of a court in your divorce case, you do have the ability to file an appeal, with some restrictions.
