Good evening! I can help you out with your legal question tonight. Are you in TX? Is this a Texas case?
Here is a link to the civil Notice of Appeal http://pdf.legalformsfortexas.com/PDFs/Civil/CIVLIT_3610.pdf
It is a good template to follow. Was that all you needed? I see you are offline, so just respond and I'll see your response the next time I am on.
The template was very helpful – Thanks!
Yes, the trial court was a Texas municipal court.
I also understand that at the same time I file my notice of appeal, I also need to file a written request with the court clerk to prepare a transcript of my appeal preceding.
Is there any special form or structure this request to the clerk needs to follow?
