- A: If they do not have a property interest in the home; ie lease or joint tenant, you evict them the same way you would anyone else.

- Q. CAN I APPEAL A JUDGES DECISION ON AN IMMEDIATE POSSESION CASE, WHERE MY EX IS SEEKING OUR DOG.
- A: Believe it or not, but I had almost the same thing happen to me with a dog. The answer to your question is yes, you can appeal the decision of the court. Most likely the appeal must be filed within 30 days. If you wait 31 days, you are too late and the court will reject the appeal. There is a filing fee. County court appeals to the Circuit appellate division. Circuit court appeals to the District Court of Appeal. You need to argue that your evidence was not viewed by the court and that your due process rights were violated because you were deprived a "property," the dog.
