NEW JERSEY APPEAL FILING DEADLINE FAQS
Below are some examples of New Jersey appeal filing deadlines and New Jersey appeals court deadlines.   However, because each case has its own special issues, to avoid missing a deadline, be sure to consult a New Jersey appeals lawyer about the particulars of your case!   New Jersey appeals are complex and New Jersey pro se appellate briefs usually take dozens of hours to prepare properly.   New Jersey appellate filing deadlines are not easily met and New Jersey appellate filing deadlines are not always easily extended.

For New Jersey appeals from final judgments of courts, final judgments or orders of judges sitting as statutory agents and final judgments of the Division of Workers' Compensation, the New Jersey appeal filing deadline for filing a New Jersey notice of appeal is within 45 days of their entry.  For New Jersey appeals from final judgments terminating parental rights, the New Jersey appeal filing deadline for filing a New Jersey notice of appeal is within 21 days of their entry.  For New Jersey appeals from appeals from final decisions or actions of state administrative agencies or officers, other than appeals from judgments of the Division of Workers' Compensation and other than those governed by R. 8:2 (tax matters) and by R. 4:74-8 (Wage Collection Section appeals), the New Jersey appeal filing deadline for filing a New Jersey notice of appeal is within 45 days from the date of service of the decision or notice of the action taken.

There are strict guidelines for how proofs are presented on New Jersey Appeals.  Accordingly, attorneys are not always permitted to present to a New Jersey Appeal Court all the proofs that the New Jersey appeal attorney believes are relevant to the appeal.  
It is not uncommon for a New Jersey appellate brief to require hundreds of citations to the record.  
Format of New Jersey appeal papers is in large part specified by the New Jersey Appeal Rules.  
The standard of review for New Jersey appeals may be different from New Jersey trial court standards for deciding issues before them. 
Failure to properly frame the issues via the New Jersey appellate brief could be fatal to one's New Jersey appeal.
New Jersey Appeals Courts expect a higher standard of writing than that found in the typical New Jersey trial court brief.
Motions filed in the New Jersey Appeal Division follow different procedures than motions in New Jersey trial courts. 
Not all issues presented to a New Jersey trial court are worthwhile to present to a New Jersey Appeal Court.  Arguing irrelevant or nominal issues on your New Jersey appeal may hurt rather than help your chances of appealing a New Jersey lower court decision.
