Judges Do Make Mistakes

While it is rare, Missouri’s esteemed family law judges do make mistakes. For example, when a case involves a dispute over child support, the judge is required to do a separate child support calculations. Another example is in child custody disputes. Judges are required to present findings in certain circumstances describing what was considered and why the ruling was made. If a judge does not do something that is required, it can be the basis of an appeal or post-trial motion.

Complex Cases

Appeals and post-trial motions are a complex area of the law. In fact, this area has recently grown more complex. Now, motions for new trial and motions to amend judgments must include a comprehensive list of all issues that the court of appeals is being requested to review. If something is missed, it will not be reviewed, hindering the strength of the case.
With more than 25 years of experience on our side, we understand the importance of thorough preparation. We will scour the transcript and any other relevant documents to find indication of errors. In order to move forward, there must be indication of a true legal error, rulings by the judge that, as a matter of law, are incorrect. If a matter is discretionary, an appeal will not be successful. There has to be evidence of a judge misapplying the law. If there is such evidence, we will find it and use it to build a successful appeal.
