Is it possible to appeal a court order in a litigated divorce?

By Rosalyn Charles

If you’ve settled the case and you’ve gotten a judgment for divorce, there are no grounds for appeal. If you go as far as a trial and ultimately allow a judge to make a decision on all the issues in the case, then you have an option of appealing the matter to a higher court. That will take forever and drag out the process even further. So, yes, you can appeal it.
