An appeal is essentially a request to have the decision of the lower Court reviewed by the higher Court. The appeal process is very complex and requires an Ottawa family law appeal lawyer with expertise in this process.
Part of the appeal process is developing a sound legal argument to challenge the decision of the lower Court. This could include reviewing evidence, facts, witness testimony and other details, determining how each of these applies and whether there is sufficient grounds to file an appeal. There needs to be a finding that the court made an error in the case. This error then needs to be corrected on appeal.
