What is an Appeal?

An appeal is a request for review to a higher court of a lower court’s order.  There are several levels of courts to which you may appeal.  An appeal is typically not a new hearing.  The higher court only reviews the evidence and law presented to the lower to determine if the lower court erred in its ruling.
