Dallas Family Law Appeals Lawyer
Helping Texas Clients Triumph in Family Law Appeals
When a trial court renders its final judgment regarding your divorce or other family law matter, it does not necessarily mean the issue is forever settled. If the final divorce decree or other judgment resulted from a significant legal error, you can take the matter to the Court of Appeals and possibly reverse the trial court's ruling.
The appeals process is instrumental in ensuring justice in Texas and the United States. At O'Neil Wysocki P.C., our dedicated attorneys focus primarily on legal disputes involving Texas family law, including family law appeals.

Appealable Interlocutory Orders
- An interlocutory order is one that a court issues while proceedings are ongoing. In general, interlocutory orders are not appealable. However, an order appointing a receiver is appealable. Further, courts may permit an appeal for an otherwise non-appealable interlocutory order.
Suits Affecting the Parent-Child Relationship (SAPCR)
- SAPCR cases include child conservatorship, paternity, and adoption issues. Texas rules for civil appeals apply to final SAPCR orders. Importantly, filing an appeal does not maintain the effectiveness of a SAPCR order.
- In Texas, certain family law proceedings are subject to procedures for accelerated appeals—namely parental termination cases and child protection cases.
- Final modification orders are subject to appeal. However, temporary modification orders are considered non-appealable interlocutory orders.
How Can a Texas Appellate Attorney Help Me?
We can take the reins of your appeals case and handle the challenging legal proceedings and issues, such as:

Understanding Appellate Issues in Texas Family Law Practice
Each state has its laws governing family law issues. The Texas Family Code regulates family law disputes for Texas residents and their families. Therefore, Texas procedural rules also govern family law appeals cases.
In many appeals cases, the judge has failed to apply the procedural or substantive rules to your case. If such an error resulted in prejudice to the parties, the Texas Court of Appeals can reverse and remand for the trial court to correct.
