Potential Outcomes from the Appellate Process

When you file an appeal, the appellate court reviews the entire case to determine whether the court decided the case correctly. If the court finds that the trial court did not follow the law, they have a few options for the appellate decision.

  • Reversal – The court decides the initial case decision was inaccurate and vacates the judgment.

  • Remand – The court sends the case back to family court for a review and rehearing.

  • Affirm – The court upholds the family court’s ruling, and the decision stays the same.

  • Modification – The court modifies part of the original decision.
