Notice of Appeal critique

(1/10) > >>

lisser:
There is no standard form for a Notice of Appeal to the Circuit Court in my state so I've made my own.

Would anyone care to critique it?

Once I file this and pay my filing fee along with it, I have 30 days to file my Statement of Appeal.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

From this moment on whatever is filed must be sent the other side , certificate of mailing must accompany all paperwork/filings in my state.

Just FYI, When filing a brief make sure to send the opponent's copy via CMRR, as they can lie and say it was never sent.

Great! Thank you so much for the advice. I will make sure to do that.

Sending it to the JDB lawyer is adequate correct? Or send to JDB as well?

I like your Notice of Appeal. The one I got was from my State's Rules of Civil Procedure though. Do you think I should deviate?

In the small claims handbook it states there are no forms for the Notice of Appeal or Statement of Appeal but I found the example I used in the KY RCP, Rule 73.

In looking at Rule 73, it's not entirely consistent with the handbook for small claims on my state's website. I think I need to be looking over this rule in more detail.

Requirements are listed in Rule 73 that are not listed in the handbook.

In my state, it must be captioned and the name of the judge should be after the case and order date. Next would be the reason for appeal in bold.
I would check and comply with state's rules (there must be a handbook /guide to appeal )

I sent everything to the counsel /law firm who was representing the client in court, I addressed it to LAW OFFICES OF XXXXX
