Post Judgment Motions -Overview
What happens if you have gone through a family law trial, and the court ruled against you? Consider hiring a Southern California family law attorney to file a post-judgment motion.
What Does Post Judgement Mean?
Like its name implies, a post-judgment motion occurs after the court has entered the judgment. From that time, you have set period of time to contest the family law court’s decision, or you will have to take your case on appeal.
After the trial, you can make a motion for a new trial, motion to vacate, or motion to set-aside the judgment, among other motions. In each of these motions, the party making the motion points out any potential procedural or legal mistakes made by the court or the parties during trial and requests the court review what happened. If the court agrees that a mistake occurred justifying relief and the court has the power to correct the mistake, the court will grant the motion.
