The Illinois Appeals Process

In this article, our Cook County appeals attorneys discuss appealing court decisions in Illinois. In Illinois, many court decisions can be used using different methods under the law. Our attorneys discuss how to appeal a court decision, the timeline for appeals and how to appeal court decisions in Illinois courts. In Illinois, cases are initially closed and heard in county district courts. They are also called “trial courts” because circuit courts are the level at which each party presents evidence and jury and bench trials are held in order to reach findings of fact.The court of appeal will examine the file of the court of first instance as well as the briefs drawn up by the two parties and will decide whether to set aside the decision of the court of first instance, to confirm it or to order further action by the court of first instance. If the appeals court overturns or upholds the trial court's decision, then the losing party can appeal to the Illinois Supreme Court.

Can You Appeal a Temporary Order During an Illinois Divorce Case?

In this Learn About Law article, our Cook County appeals attorneys discuss what a temporary order is, what orders can be appealed in Illinois divorce cases, and the processes for appealing temporary orders in Illinois. The general notion that appeals can only be filed after the final judgment is handed down is false. Furthermore, based on rulings from the Illinois Supreme court certain temporary orders are not appealable purely based on the fact they are not final. Because interlocutory orders are subject to modification during divorce proceedings, and because appealing temporary orders can break up the original case proceedings; making for a disjointed, inefficient process, appellate courts are hesitant to hear appeals of such orders.

Illinois Child Custody Appeals

In this Learn About Law article, our Cook County appeals attorneys examine Illinois child custody appeals in Illinois and the laws surrounding them. We examine filing deadlines and explain what orders can be appealed and how to prepare and file appeals. Our Illinois appeals attorneys also examine the expedited process for appealing temporary child custody orders in Illinois. Because lawmakers want to provide permanence and stability to children in custody cases as quickly as possible, the Supreme Court Rules carve out an exception to the general rule that only orders adjudicating all claims in a case are appealable without a special finding of the trial court.  Illinois Supreme Court Rule 306(b) states that orders relating to custody and parenting time are immediately appealable without a special finding by the trial court even if they are entered prior to other matters in the case, such as spousal maintenance and property division, are resolved.
