Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
I need to file an appeal in the State of Georgia, but it isn't clear which forms I need to fill out and what it needs to contain. This is my "first" step in the appeals process so I am unsure what all I need to provide.
An example of an application, brief, etc. would be great.
Hi ZDN. This is a divorce ruling. There are several components of the ruling that are counter to precedent that I need to appeal, but it isn't clear how I need to form this document to turn in to the clerk of courts.
1. The court issued a final judgement (from what I can tell looking at the database), though I have not received anything. Shouldn't I receive the final judgement? Opposing council generated the document and I commented on it and it went to the judge and I requested a hearing on the matter. However when I look at the court docket, it is listed as closed.
2. I've still got 3 days in the 30 day window to file my application. I would file a motion to extend, but I can't find that document online either.
