(1) identify the trial court and state the case's trial court number and style;
(2) state the date of the judgment or order appealed from;
(3) state that the party desires to appeal;
(4) state the court to which the appeal is taken unless the appeal is to either the First or Fourteenth Court of Appeals, in which case the notice must state that the appeal is to either of those courts;
(5) state the name of each party filing the notice;
The Notice of Appeal is filed with the court that entered the order, and a copy goes to the opposing party. Here is a sample, with instructions.
OK, i cant make any sense of that. I was awarded a judgement in small claims court. JP Court, pct 4 tarrant county texas. I need some information that applies to tarrant county.
I dont have a problem typing up a motion. From what I understand by calling the court I have to pay twice the amount of the judgement in order to get an appeal. I would like to know why I have to pay twice the amount of the judgement when I am the one that is owed the judgement. Also when I file the appeal do I list the court that ordered the judgement or the court that will hear the appeal?
Unfortunately, we are not able to review documents and provide specific advice, so, I'm not able to look at it for you. I apologize for the inconvenience.
I based it off of the document you sent me. You cannot even tell me if I have the format correct?
Ok its not a form any longer. So I would really appreciate it if you can tell me if the following format will work to file an appeal
Justice of the Peace
Tarrant County Texas
CAUSE NO. XXXXXXX
XXXXXIN THE COUNTY COURT
(Plaintiff) TARRANT COUNTY
NOTICE OF APPEAL
XXXXX (plaintiff) files this notice of appeal from Justice of the Peace, Precinct Four, XXXXXX’s court, Small claims cause number XXXXXX
The Judgment was signed on May 24th 2013
The name of the party bringing the appeal is XXXXXX
The party desires to appeal to the County Court of Law in Tarrant County Texas and hereby gives notice of appeal
XXXXXX hereby invokes the jurisdiction of the court of appeals and desires to appeal the trial court’s judgment of principal as insufficient.
That needs to be filed along with the appeal? Or is that to be done after the appeal with a certified file stamped copy of the appeal?
So I need to do it before I file with the court?
Ok, I filed the Appeal today. They also made me pay $544 as a bond for the appeal. I just got a call from the court clerk and she said I need to file an appeal bond. She said it is a totally separate piece of paper from the Appeal. I cannot find anything that relates to and appeal bond.
Ok, I found one or two actually, But the both state that By signing I agree to pay the sum of ????? to the Appellee. It seems to me that by filing this paper I agree to pay his debt to me.
