What is an appeal and other related questions

If you are convicted of a crime, you have the right to file an appeal. There is no guarantee that this will work out in your favor, but it is something to consider. An appeal is nothing more than a petition to a higher court to overturn the lower court's initial ruling.

It is important to note that an appeal can only be filed after an order or final judgment has been reached by the trial court.

Now that you have some basic knowledge of the appeals process, here are a variety of other questions to address:

-- Does an appeal always mean that a new trial will take place?

-- Can all types of judgments be appealed?

-- What does the appeals process entail?

-- How long does it take to file an appeal and when will a decision be made?

-- What are the odds of an appeal being a success?

-- Are there any times in which you are not permitted to file an appeal?

These are just a few of the questions related to the appeals process. Knowing the answers can help you better understand your rights and what's to come if you need to file an appeal.

It is your hope that you are not convicted of a crime. If this does happen, it doesn't necessarily mean you have to take the punishment. It is possible to file an appeal to a higher court. Knowing that this is an option could give you peace of mind in the event of a conviction. It may also help you eventually win your case.
