Child Custody - How To Contest The Outcome Of A Residence Case

David Allison (Specilist Family Lawyer) gives expert video advice on: How can I contest the outcome of a residence case?

How can I contest the outcome of a residence case?

You can contest the outcome of a residence case, or indeed any children application, by way of an appeal. Appeals can be quite tricky. There can be some strict time limits and the procedure can be quite, you need to follow it quite carefully, and so if you can, it's important to get some specialist family law advice and to do it quickly because there can be some quite strict time limits. And appeals don't necessarily follow. You can't have an appeal in every case, or certainly you are not going to be successful in every case. And because it is not a rehearing, it's a question of genuinely of finding that either the judge was wrong in law or that his or her decision was so out of the ordinary, so perverse that a reasonable judge wouldn't come to that conclusion based on the facts that he or she has decided, and so it can be quite difficult to appeal.
