Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello there --
There is no automatic tolling due to a mistake in a situation like this (no matter who made the mistake). However, the court is generally very reasonable when something like this happens but you will have to file a written request with the court to extend the time so that the appeals can be separated out and filed separately by the court. Ask the court clerk if they have a form that you can use to write up a Motion for tolling of time and submit it to the court to make the request. MARY
