Was the final decision made in the circuit court?
If you are appealing a case from the circuit court in Virginia, pursuant to Rule 5A:6, you must file the appeal within 30 days after the final judgment is entered. The Notice of Appeal must be filed in the clerk's office and a copy of the appeal is mailed to opposing counsel and the clerk of the Court of Appeals, along with a $50.00 filing fee. Here is the form for the Notice of Appeal and required certificate. You must also file a bond for costs and a transcript or written statement of facts must be filed within 60 days after entry of the final judgment from the trial court. Here is a link to a sample of the appeal instructions. Appeals are very technical in Virginia. It is highly advisable to retain an attorney if possible.
