Can I appeal before the case is over?

Certain orders may be appealed before the case is concluded. Examples of some of these orders are those that determine:

1) the right to the immediate possession of property;
2) child custody or monetary relief in a family law matter;
3) injunctive relief; or
4) jurisdiction of a person.

A higher court can sometimes review other non-final orders by special writ. An appellate expert should determine this question.
