      What is the Pittsburgh Family Law Appeals Process?

      If you are subject to an unfavorable Family Court order or judgment, you have the right to appeal the judge’s decision. 

      With Family Court decisions, you have only 30 days to file a Notice of Appeal after the court makes its decision. If the issues involve child custody, you must also file a Rule 1925 Statement in which you explain to the judge the issues you are raising on appeal.

      How Long Does a Family Law Appeal Take in Pittsburgh?

      Family law appeals are treated differently depending upon what type of family law issues are being raised. Child custody appeals are “fast-tracked” and decisions are reached much more quickly in child custody appeals than other family law appeals. Typically it will take six to eight months for a child custody appeal to be decided.

      Other kinds of family law appeals in Pittsburgh take approximately nine months to a year to be resolved.
