Our No-Fee Promise: You Don’t Pay Unless We Win


Dec 31, 2019 | California

You’re dissatisfied with the superior court’s decision. You want a higher court to appeal. Could you do that? You will be guided to decide the first three stages. First of all, you have to consider whether you are an attractive person. Next, the court has made an appealable judgement, an appealable order, or an appealable order, and you must have the paperwork to verify that. You then have to file a form called a Notice of Appeal within a certain period of time, letting the court know that you plan to appeal.

What Can Be Appealed?

Not every court decision can be appealed.

Most of the orders made in the case can be appealed as soon as possible in family law and probate cases. However, in other cases, with some exceptions, you can only appeal a final judgment or an order after the final judgment. Usually in the middle of the trial, the court makes its final judgment.

In some cases, before it ever goes to trial, the court dismisses a lawsuit.

It indicates that the defendant was unable to prove to the court that he or she has done something legally wrong with anyone. After a demurrer, a dismissal will come.

A demurrer is a motion put forward by the defendant arguing that although everything the complainant said in his complaint is valid, the complaint still does not pose anything that is legally wrong or that can serve as the basis for a lawsuit. If the court agrees there is no basis for a claim, the case will be dismissed.

The condition under which a lawsuit may be dismissed before the court is following a motion for summary judgment. After the parties have found that they have heard the facts of what happened and established evidence in the case, a motion for a summary judgment arrives.

If there are no “triable material factual problems”- that is, there is no conflicting evidence of dispositive facts – either the plaintiff or the defendant or both can bring a motion/ or motions for summary judgment arguing that the court will rule on their behalf as a matter of law.

Despite the name “summary judgment”, the court’s ruling after a summary judgment motion has been filed is an order, not just a final judgment.

With the exception of the demurrer’s situation- in which a final judgment is not needed- a summary judgment order can not be appealed. A final judgment must be made by the court later, which is appealable.


The Minutes are the official account of what happened in the case.

The clerk writes the minutes and keeps them in the record of the Superior Court for the trial. Through looking at the bottom of the pages in your file and seeing the “Minutes” tag, you may recognize the minutes. If it is an order, the clerk may record the court’s ruling between the minutes. It is called a minute order because it is delivered in the minutes.

You may understand the order because it is specifically referred to as an order, or the language orders something to be done or the language determines or settles a conflict. If the judge and the file-stamped sign the minute order, it can be used as the basis for the notice of appeal.
