Guiding You Through Appeals In Family Law And Divorce

As you move through your divorce proceedings, you may believe that the rulings handed down by the courts may be unfair to you or your children. Similar to other practice areas, you have the power to appeal these rulings to a higher court.

Fighting For What's Fair In Your Divorce

At Dowan Law Offices, our founding attorney, LeeAnna Dowan, has more than 10 years of experience handling all aspects of divorce and family law cases, including appellate matters. If you believe that your parenting time agreement, spousal support payments or property division agreement was administered improperly or without acknowledging important facts, LeeAnna can review your case and help you pursue an appeal.

To successfully navigate the complex appeals process, you want to work with an attorney who understands the strict procedural requirements of filing an appeal in Kentucky. There are numerous deadlines to be met as well as standards and procedures for filing an appeal. If a single step is overlooked or a deadline missed, your appeal may be dead on arrival. As your lawyers, we will see that this doesn't happen to you.

We keep an eye open for appeal opportunities when building your case and during trial.

Don't Give Up On Your Case — We Won't

As experienced trial attorneys, we are constantly aware that your case may go up on appeal. Since appeals are based on the record of what transpired during the initial trial, we are acutely aware of how we present statements and actions while paying close attention to the opposition.

Even if you did not work with us initially, contact us and learn how we can help you make sense of your options and potentially pursue an appeal. Call 270-872-0911, 800-482-1391 or complete our online contact form to schedule a free initial consultation at our Elizabethtown, Kentucky, law office.
