30K (her costs 120k)
Expert:  Ash replied 11 months ago.

Ok - grounds of appeal can be:

1) Decision was wrong in law

2) There was an error in procedure

3) The decision was one which no reasonable Judge could have made.,

A skeleton argument is a summary of your position in terms of WHY the Judge got it wrong, references to any supporting evidence and law.

Its not a statement, its a clear and concise argument as to why the decision as wrong.

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Alex

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
The decision was made by a recorder in the central family court.
Does the request for permission to appeal take the form N161 at the court of appeals?
Expert:  Ash replied 11 months ago.

Yes is N161 but it will go before a High Court Judge, its not the court of appeal.

Does that clarify? Alex
