If my appeal say Affirmed what does that mean?



it means the appellate court agrees with the decision of the lower court -


on the other hand, if a judgment, decree, or order is not affirmed it is either remanded - meaning sent back to the lower court with instructions to correct the irregularities noted in the appellate opinion -


or reversed, changed by the appellate court so that the decision of the lower court is overturned
