Is There an Appeal Deadline in Utah?
Yes, there is an appeal deadline Utah. You must file a notice of appeal with the trial court within 30 days of the final judgment. Admittedly, some post-judgment motions will extend the time you have to appeal. Some orders or judgments are not necessarily a final order or judgment that starts the clock.
What To Do When Considering An Appeal
If you are considering an appeal before the appeal deadline from an unfavorable judgment or ruling, you should contact an appellate attorney as soon as possible. An appellate attorney can help determine the due date for your appeal. Additionally, an appellate attorney can identify grounds for appeal and consult with you about the practicalities of appeal. At Christensen Law, we have experience with both trials and appeals and can help you from the beginning of your or help you with the appeal only.
