An appeal involves a higher court reviewing a lower court’s ruling. Sometimes an appeal may need to be filed while a case is still pending in what is known as an interlocutory appeal. Other times an appeal may need to be filed after the final disposition in a case. You have the right to appeal any type of case. However, the law has very strict time limits within which you can file an appeal.
