Expedited Appeal Law and Legal Definition

An expedited appeal is a case where the appellant is appealing the decision of an administrative law judge or an agency board to speed up an appeal. The court will speed up cases involving issues of child custody, support, visitation, adoption, paternity, determination that a child is in need of services, termination of parental rights, and all other appeals entitled to priority by the appellate rules or statute.

According to Ind. R. App. P. 21, the court shall give expedited consideration to interlocutory appeals and appeals involving issues of child custody, support, visitation, adoption, paternity, determination that a child is in need of services, termination of parental rights, and all other appeals entitled to priority by rule or statute by motion for expedited consideration or by motion of any party. Other appeals that involve the constitutionality of any law, the public revenue, and public health, or otherwise of general public concern or for other good cause, may be expedited by order of the court.
