Petition for appeal – this phrase within the Court procedures describes the appellate claim by the appellant, submitted at the 2nd stage court against the proclaimed decision of the lower court, before it enters in force. Usually the appellant is the party not satisfied with the decision of the lower court. Appeal periods differ in the various jurisdictions.
* Note it is advisable to hire a lawyer who to submit the appellate petition on your behalf, because lawyers know terms, conditions and specifics of applications; in this way you may avoid a situation where your appellate petition could be revoked (i.e. not accepted) by the court due to some legal defect or shortcoming – for example if you have not stipulated requested details, or have not attached the needed proofs, etc.
