Cuando Existe una Decisión

21 de septiembre de 2021

¿Qué es una Moción de Reconsideración?

After trial, there are several types of motions that can be filed to address possible trial errors. You may want to consult with an attorney to see if any of these options may work better in your situation than filing an appeal. Depending on the type of motion, there are often short filing deadlines for these motions. The most common type of post-trial motion is a Motion for Reconsideration in which you are asking the judge to reconsider his/her ruling and change one specific part of the court order or the court’s overall ruling. Dependiendo de las leyes de su estado, una Moción de Reconsideración puede ser una opción en situaciones en las que:

  • usted no está satisfecho/a con la orden de el/la juez/a y cree que el/la juez/a no consideró o examinó apropiadamente cierta evidencia o las leyes aplicables; o
  • hay nueva evidencia disponible que usted no pudo presentar antes de que el/la juez/a tomara la decisión.

One way that a Motion for Reconsideration may have a negative effect, however, is that if the judge rules against you, s/he may use it as an opportunity to make the ruling harder to appeal by strengthening his/her factual findings or legal analysis against your position.
