If you are thinking of appealing a court order it is very important to get expert independent legal advice. This is not only because of the cost implications but also because you need to know how much of a chance your appeal realistically has of being successful.
Also, you should talk to a solicitor so you can weigh up a cost and benefit ratio against taking the court order to appeal.
It is also worth bearing in mind that if you lose the appeal, you may have to pay the other party’s legal costs. This could potentially outweigh any benefit you would gain by appealing and is worth careful consideration.
There are no set costs for an appeal and it is worth consulting your solicitor for a detailed breakdown for your specific case. Costs include legal fees, court costs and potentially the legal fees of the other party.
We strongly recommend that you go to see a specialist solicitor and talk through your options before making any decisions about appealing. It can be a costly and risky process, but having said that, it is sometimes right, depending on your individual circumstances.
