Divorce Decree Appeals

Appeal: A Claim That An Error in Law Was Made in Your Divorce Case

Divorce Decree Appeals are significantly different from Divorce Decree Modifications! A Divorce Decree Appeal is, in effect, a claim that an error in law was made in your divorce case. These errors could be ones of the court, or either attorney. Appeals are complex processes, difficult to substantiate and you should expect the process to be slow and potentially expensive.

When you file an appeal you are claiming that the higher appellate court should “reverse” or overturn the lower (trial) court’s decision in your divorce case. New Mexico law generally favors the finality of judgments, therefore, relief from a final judgment or decree of divorce is usually NOT available absent exceptional and compelling circumstances. You should also know that there is a very short time after a decree is entered during which New Mexico divorce decree appeals may be made (30 days). New Mexico Financial and Family Law can assist you in timely assessing your case, the circumstances, and guide you and represent you in the appellate process.
