The appeal shall be lodged before the court that has rendered the judgment subject to be challenged within the period of 20 business days from the day after the date that the appellant party is notified of the court’s decision.
Once the court clerk has checked that the decision that has been challenged is eligible for appeal and the appeal has been lodged within the timeframe permitted, the court clerk shall agree to process the appeal. In the event that the decision is not eligible for appeal, the court shall decide on its admissibility.
Should the appeal be granted, the court clerk shall serve notice to the other parties in the proceeding, who will be given a period of ten business days to submit a written statement contesting or joining the appeal by challenging the part of the decision that is unfavourable to them.
After having filed the aforementioned written statements, the court clerk shall send the case file to the appellate court which holds jurisdiction to decide on the appeal.
