Child Protection Appeals
INSTRUCTIONS FOR CHILD PROTECTION APPEALS
In all cases where your client wishes to appeal a final judgment in a child protection case:
• The lawyer must have the client sign an application for waiver of costs & fees and request for appointment of counsel. This must be filed with the court, along with a Motion to Extend Time for filing the appeal.
• It is the responsibility of trial counsel to complete the Appeal Review Request Form in Filemaker to request the appointment of appellate counsel, or for appellate review.
