If you lose, you should have the right to appeal. Read the rules about initiating an appeal in your court and for the appropriate appellate court.
You will have to draft a Notice of Appeal.
Many courts offer a Notice of Appeal form that you might use. Check the Clerk of Court’s website for a form, or call and ask someone in the Clerk’s office.
If there isn’t a form, simply draft a Notice of Appeal. A Notice of Appeal is formatted it like any other motion: a caption. Here is sample language that should be included in any Notice of Appeal: “Please take notice that [your name] hereby appeals to the [name of appellate court] from the judgment entered [date judgment was entered].” Then add a date and your signature.
Provide a Certificate of Service to the other party.
There are deadlines for appeals. If you want to appeal, file your Notice of Appeal immediately.
I use the Notice of Appeal to include any additional evidence that I would like to get into the Court Record. I always get mine sworn before a notary.
