What is an Appeal?

An appeal is a second-tier process in law that generally enables a higher legal authority to assess whether a substantial wrong has been done at the first trial level. There is a burden on the appellant to show that the re-examination of the case is justified. The grounds of appeal therefore need to be analyzed carefully in deciding whether to appeal a case.


United States appellate procedure involves the rules and regulations for filing appeals in state courts and federal courts. The nature of an appeal can vary greatly depending on the type of case and the rules of the court in the jurisdiction where the case was prosecuted.

An appellate procedure that goes wrong, could have severe immigration implications leading to removal or deportation of an individual.
