family outline at sunset

Historically we (family law attorneys) have advised our clients of the pitfalls of appealing domestic relations decisions. "You have to show abuse of discretion." "You have to show that the trial judge made major mistakes, and that's hard to do." "Most appeals are lost." "You'll end up paying me (attorney) alot of money and we won't win." And there's good reason for saying all of these things to our clients...its true! However, the Arkansas Court of Appeals last Wednesday reversed a custody award, a property division determination, and an alimony award...all in the same case. Here's the link http://courts.state.ar.us/opinions/2006b/20061206/ca06-660.pdf
