About the Program

When one party wins, can the loser have the judgment or order stayed by simply filing an appeal? Or is something more required, like posting a bond or asking permission from the court? When must a stay be requested from the trial court before the appellate court can issue a stay? The time to think about these things is now, as decisions must be made quickly when a ruling is made and clients want to know what they can do to protect the win or delay the loss. This webinar will explore appellate stays, including a discussion of the special rules for family law actions.
