Appealing a Family Court Decision

All family law matters begin in the Superior Court of New Jersey Family Part (trial court). This is where a complaint for divorce, custody or support is filed. If the case is not resolved by agreement of the parties and a decision is made by a judge after a hearing or trial, you have 45 days to appeal the trial court's decision to the Supreme Court Appellate Division if you are not satisfied with the trial court's decision. The Appellate Division decision can then be appealed to the New Jersey Supreme Court.
