Q: What do I need to put in a brief to the superior Court for an appeal in an Allegheny county PA child’s fast track? Appealing an emergency motion on 4 errors 1. Biased- defendant called in to Chambers without plaintiff 2. Lack of notice -served Oct 2, court on Oct 5th 3. Lack of due process-asked for a fair hearing, was not granted 4. Violation legal custody rights. (Pittsburgh, PA)
A: Appellate practice is tricky and has lots of rules. It is almost a specialty among attorneys. I no longer handle my own appeals and refer them to someone who does them routinely. I believe you are on a fatal course if you handle this yourself.
