After a regular dissolution of marriage, if you feel the judge's decision
was incorrect, you may appeal that decision, provided that certain
procedural steps are taken. An appellate court does not, however,
frequently reverse a trial judge's decision because the judge has
broad discretion in divorce cases. Just because you do not like the
judge's decision is not a reason for an appeal. If the trial judge
makes an error of law, or has abused his discretion, the decision
may be reversed.
